Sources say Cassidy was cuffed at a local convenience store near Jersey City without incident and that the 28-year-old was "surprised" by the arrest. He is being held in the Bergen County Jail waiting to be extradited to Philadelphia where the crimes were allegedly committed. In 2006 Reese was convicted for involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 23 months.
