Somewhat ironically, he released his own album titled "Trouble Man" in 2010.

Hoffman and Vineberg had allegedly engaged in several drug transactions before the actor's tragic death earlier this month, although officials insist there is no direct link to the actor "at this time."

Vineberg was taken into custody for drug possession on Tuesday after a police raid at his Manhattan home found more than 350 envelopes packed with heroin, none of which were marked with the "Ace of Spades" and "Ace of Hearts" emblems found at Hoffman's drug den.
