James Rosemond Arrested on Drug Charges

Last week, an inmate named Dexter Isaac said music producer James Rosemond paid him $2,500 in 1994 to rob iconic rapper Tupac Shakur.

That may or may not be true, but Rosemond was arrested yesterday on different charges: the head of Czar Entertainment has been booked for narcotics distribution and money laundering.

Incredibly, Rosemond and Isaac will likely end up in the same prison, at least temporarily, as the latter will be held at Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center.

"I don't think the bureau of prisons will allow them to be in the same cell or in the same unit," Rosemond's attorney, Jeffrey Lichtman, told E! News.

As for the latest allegations against his client? Lichtman dismissed them all:

Lichtman has contended the charges against his client baseless.

"The charges are the result of allegations from witnesses who have been bribed and threatened by the government. And have otherwise spent lifetimes lying. The government wants a trial. So they are going to get a trial."
