According to NY Post:
Hip hop talent agent James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was arrested by DEA agents and charged today with heading a cocaine trafficking ring that operated on both the West and East coasts, authorities said.
Rosemond, 46, who manages singers Brandy and Akon, was accused this past May of being involved in a cocaine distribution ring.
The hip-hop mogul spotted the agents at about noon as he walked out of the W Hotel in Union Square, sources said.
Once on the street, Rosemond walked north and tried to outrun the agents until he was finally arrested on 21st Street and Park Avenue South.
The US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn charged Rosemond in a complaint today with orchestrating the delivery of multiple kilos of cocaine from Los Angeles to the New York City metropolitan area.
Millions of dollars in drug proceeds went from New York back to California, the complaint charged.
Rosemond is expected to be arraigned this afternoon in Brooklyn federal court.
The DEA probe was aided by two informants who were high-ranking members of Rosemond’s organization, the feds said.
