Lou Reed’s manager Tom Sargit was arrested on Sunday (March 20) over a charge of aggravated harassment.

Sarig was accused of threatening behaviour towards headhunter Adrian Smith following a dispute over an allegedly unpaid bill.

After much alleged bartering over Smith‘s fee for a recruitment for Reed, things reportedly got so heated that Sarig allegedly told him: “Our guys in Israel are going to fly in and they will kill you.”

The Washington Post reports that Smith told police that the dispute with Sarig was over $11,500 (£7,082) he said was owed to him for helping Reed to get a new personal assistant.

Police said that Sarig has no prior criminal history. He could face up to a year in jail if the case goes to court and he is found guilty.
