    Rapper Lil Reese is in more legal trouble.

    The Chicago rapper was in bond court Sunday on a misdemeanor theft charge and records show the Def Jam rapper and friend of fellow rapper Chief Keef was arrested after he "presented false documentation to obtain" a BMW in April.

    Neither police nor prosecutors elaborated on the charge Sunday.

    His arrest over the weekend comes about two months after he was arrested in Chicago after police in Champaign identified him as the alleged attacker of a woman whose 2012 beating was captured on videotape.

    The rapper issued an apology on Twitter just days after the video went viral.

    Court records indicate he has pleaded not guilty in that case.
