Irv Gotti To Enter Drug-Diversion Program

Lawyers for Irv Gotti will enter a plea on his

behalf on August 25 and the CEO of Murder Inc. will enter a drug-diversion program

in Oakland, California.

Because he has no criminal record, Gotti is eligible

for the drug-diversion program. He must complete the program to have drug related

charges dismissed.

Gotti was arrested last Friday backstage at the

Oakland Coliseum during an R. Kelly concert. Guards at a security checkpoint

searched Gotti and found one ecstasy pill and four prescription Viagra tablets

in his wallet.
