Cassidy - Cassidy Released From Jail

Rapper Cassidy has been released from jail following his arrest in New Jersey earlier this month (14May11).
The Hotel hitmaker, real name Barry Reese, was put behind bars at the Bergen County Jail after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
He walked free at the weekend (21-22May11) and has now dismissed reports he had landed in trouble after authorities linked him to a murder case - insisting he merely missed a meeting with his probation officer.
Cassidy tells internet radio programme The Come Up Show, "It was something light. I’m still on probation from the situation that I dealt with about six, seven years ago... I’m still on probation. It’s like a real light probation... I’m running around the world. I didn’t even go (to see my probation officer) every month like the regular person, so it slipped my mind. The way my P.O. (probation officer) wrote the warrants out was that I had a warrant, and he put the murder on there because that was the case it was revolved around... But I wasn’t fighting a new (charge)... It was just a warrant because of violation of probation because I didn’t go to see my P.O..."
Cassidy was previously convicted of charges including involuntary manslaughter and two counts of aggravated assault stemming from a 2005 shooting in Pennsylvania.
