Drummer suspected of embezzling $750K from charity concert

Prosecutors say the former musical director for the United Nations and Arsenio Hall's TV show has been arrested on suspicion of embezzling $750,000 from an overseas charity concert for homeless children.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Robin DiMaggio could face wire fraud charges. Prosecutors say DiMaggio was wired $750,000 after agreeing to help the Peace for You Peace for Me Foundation to organize a concert in Bulgaria.

Officials say instead of putting the money in escrow to pay artists, the 47-year-old used it to pay personal expenses and buy his ex-wife a house.

If convicted, DiMaggio could face 20 years in prison.

In his career as a drummer, DiMaggio has played on albums by Paul Simon and Diana Ross.
