NEW YORK (AP) - Lou Reed’s manager won’t be prosecuted on a New York City harassment claim stemming from a bizarre squabble with a consultant over money.
Manager Tom Sarig received notice from the Manhattan district attorney’s office Wednesday. He had been arrested after consultant Adrian Smith went to police, but Smith later was charged with harassment in the dispute.
Smith criticizes the DA’s decision not to prosecute. He says everything he told police was true.
Smith told police Sarig threatened to kill him after he tried to get $11,500 he said was owed to him for helping find the “Walk on the Wild Side” singer a new personal assistant. Smith already was paid in full before he spoke to police.
