Max Rosenblum was detained by police officers in February, 2014 as part of a raid linked to the Capote star's overdose.

Hoffman was found dead at his New York City apartment and a police probe was launched into drug paraphernalia found at his home.

Rosenblum, 24, pleaded guilty to cocaine and ecstasy possession and was sentenced to two years probation.

He was arrested in August (15) on suspicion of a drug offence, and he appeared at a Manhattan court on Tuesday (29Sep15) to face allegations he had violated his probation.

The judge overseeing the case, Justice Edward MCLaughlin, ruled a violation had taken place and ordered Rosenblum to be jailed.

He was remanded in custody after the hearing, according to the New York Post.
