Tony Yayo Arrested for Alleged Attack on Jimmy Henchmen’s Son

The arrest stems from an incident during which the rapper allegedly approached and slapped 14 year-old James Rosemond when they spotted him on the street wearing a Czar Entertainment t-shirt. The boy is the son of Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond manager for The Game and head of Czar Entertainment. According to the New York Post, Yayo spotted the younger Rosemond on Manhattan’s West 25th St. as he and 50 Cent were leaving the offices of Violator Management. At that point, witnesses say the rapper approached the boy, flashed a gun that was tucked into his waist, and pushed him up against a wall. Yayo is then said to have asked the boy his age before stating, “I don’t give a fuck how old you are – Fuck Czar Entertainment!” and slapping him. “It’s a shame that 50 Cent & Tony Yayo could feel comfortable slapping and physically attacking an innocent 14-year-old minor that they market and promote their records to.” James’ mother, Cynthia Reed said in a statement. “This is a cowardly act on my son who has done nothing to warrant the verbal and physical abuse he received . . . This should be looked as a step away from child molestation.” As Yayo was being transported from Manhattan’s 13th precinct to central booking yesterday evening, he reportedly bragged to reporters that 50 Cent would have him out of jail “by tomorrow.”
