Authorities say Kevin McEnroe and another man were arrested during "a narcotics transaction" in New York's East Village.

McEnroe did not enter a plea at his arraignment and was released on bail.

Police say the 27-year-old was in possession of cocaine and prescription medication. He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

His lawyer said there was "nothing remarkable" about the amount of drugs found on her client.

Police also arrested Niro Meneses for criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
