Lou Reed’s manager will not face charges after arrest last month

Manager Tom Sarig had been accused of aggravated harassment

Lou Reed‘s manager Tom Sarig will not face charges of aggravated harassment relating to an alleged altercation with a headhunter.

Sarig was arrested on March 20 after being accused of threatening behaviour towards Adrian Smith, a headhunter.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office told Sarig yesterday (April 13) that he would not be charged, reports the Associated Press. Smith himself will be charged with harassment though and has criticised the police’s decision not to prosecute Sarig.

Smith had claimed that Sarig allegedly told him: “Our guys in Israel are going to fly in and they will kill you” after a dispute in the fee Smith would receive for the hiring of a new personal assistant for Reed.
