3 arrested in Hoffman probe face drug charges

NEW YORK — Three of the four people arrested in New York City in the investigation of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death have been arraigned on drug charges.

Lawyers for the three say they had nothing to do with Hoffman’s death.

One of the four was charged with heroin possession with the intent to sell. Two were charged with misdemeanor cocaine possession. The fourth wasn’t charged.

The Oscar-winning actor was found dead Sunday in his Manhattan apartment. The medical examiner’s office said more tests are needed to determine how Hoffman died but police believe he may have overdosed.
