MAC MILLER: Drug Dealer Arrested

Federal prosecutors announced charges on Wednesday against a Hollywood Hills man in connection to the death of Mac Miller.

ABC News reports that 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit was arrested on Wednesday morning by DEA special agents and LAPD officers. The arrest was following up on a criminal complaint from August 30th, charging Pettit with distributing counterfeit drugs. Prosecutors allege Pettit sold 30 milligram oxycodone pills, cocaine, and Xanax to Mac on September 5th of last year. The oxycodone pills were cut with fentanyl.

Among the evidence against the alleged drug dealer is a text message he sent to a friend hours after Mac died. Pettit texted a friend, “Most likely I will die in jail.”

Hot Takes:

  • If convicted of drug trafficking, Pettit faces 20 years behind bars.
  • He made his bed. Now he has to lie in it.
  • Even if you’re an experienced drug user, can you really trust the people who you’re buying from?
  • Who knows if the dealer even knew the stuff was fake.
