James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals at the W Hotel on Union Square.
According to the New York Daily News, Rosemond was hiding in plain sight at the posh hotel where the rooms can run $1,000 a night and the opulent features include in-room spa treatments, goose down pillows and 24-hour room service.
The Czar Entertainment head tried to bolt the Manhattan hotel but was tackled by marshals Tuesday morning, and chipped a tooth when he fell, officials said.
He is due in Brooklyn Federal Court later in the day.
In addition to the drug charges, Rosemond is accused of witness tampering and obstruction of justice, authorities said.
According to reports by Eurbweb.com:
A lawyer for boxer Manny Pacquiao says rival boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. failed to appear for a court-ordered deposition in Las Vegas in a federal civil lawsuit alleging that Mayweather defamed Pacquiao.
Attorney Daniel Petrocelli says Mayweather didn’t show Friday to provide sworn testimony despite federal Magistrate Judge Robert Johnston’s ruling Thursday that he must appear.
They argued Thursday that Mayweather needed to concentrate on training for a Sept. 17 fight against Victor Ortiz.
Petrocelli tells The Associated Press he’ll seek a default finding that Mayweather defamed Pacquiao with statements accusing Pacquiao of taking performance-enhancing drugs.
