James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond — the music manager accused of orchestrating Tupac's shooting in 1994 — has been arrested. But it has nothing to do with Pac: DEA agents nabbed Rosemond in New York in connection with a drug-trafficking ring that shipped "multiple kilos of cocaine from Los Angeles to the New York City metropolitan area." Since the feds first issued a warrant for his arrest last month, Rosemond has become much more infamous in the music industry. That's thanks to Dexter Isaac, a man currently serving time in a Brooklyn prison on a murder-for-hire conviction, who confessed to involvement in the 1994 Tupac shooting and singled Rosemond out as the man who paid for the assault. (Rosemond is also allegedly involved with the killing of Lowell Fletcher, an associate of 50 Cent.) Rosemond was finally caught in New York; he was walking out of the W Hotel, spotted the agents and tried to run, and was nabbed on Park Avenue and 21st Street. The DEA says Rosemond was the head of the operation, which (surely inspired by The Wire) did its communication mostly via pay phones. Also, Rosemond's team allegedly smuggled the contraband in road cases (usually used to carry music equipment), covered in mustard so as to not attract the attention of police dogs. If that last part is true, Rosemond is now public enemy No. 1 of both fans of Tupac and fans of condiments. [NYP]
