A New York auto body shop owner pleaded guilty on Sept. 9 to drug and weapon charges. According to the report, the man was sentenced to two years in prison. The report also stated that director Martin Scorsese's nephew was working at the same shop and was also accused of being involved in illegal drug activity.
Authorities claimed that the man sold alleged heroin multiple times in April to an undercover officer.

The following day, authorities conducted a second search warrant on a home owned by the man.
