NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police say rocker Lou Reed’s manager has been arrested on a charge of aggravated harassment after allegations he threatened to kill a consultant in a dispute over money.

Tommy Sarig was arrested Sunday in the dispute with Adrian Smith, who works with the rich and famous to find personal assistants and other help.

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.

It’s unclear if Sarig has an attorney. His telephone number is unlisted.

Police say he has no prior criminal history and was given a desk appearance ticket to appear in Manhattan court.
