The star of 'House Party' and 'House Party 2' had originally plead no contest, was fined, ordered to complete community service and Alcoholics Anonymous education classes and was placed on a three year probation. Arrested earlier today, Christopher Reid was "extremely cooperative" with the cops and is currently in custody. His bail has been set at $26,000.
Post Kid 'n Play, the 47-year-old rapper had founded Brand Newz, an online magazine focusing on positive community events and leaders. He had starred in an amusing suits commercial -- "It's not always about that hip-hop house party stuff. Sometimes you gotta get clean" -- and made several guest TV appearances with his one-time rap partner Christopher "Play" Martin.
At the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival, Kid had mentioned collaborating as a duo again: "Play and I also have a television series in the works, so the future is bright." Let's hope Kid can get back on track.
