NEW YORK (AP) - Lou Reed’s manager will not be prosecuted on a 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 was later charged with harassment in the same dispute. A message left with Smith was not returned. His case remains open.

Smith told police that 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 was already paid in full before he spoke to police.

Sarig told police that Smith harassed him and his client.
