It’s just been reported that a man who is said to have been Mac Miller’s drug dealer has been now charged by federal prosecutors. It seems that the charges involve Mac’s death.
The Shade Room has more details on what happened.
TSR reminds readers that Miller was found unresponsive in his home about a year ago due to an alleged drug overdose.
TSR cites data coming from The Associated Press which reports that 28-year-old man named Cameron James Pettit is being charged for allegedly giving Miller with ‘counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl.’
‘The 42-page criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California details Instagram DM’s between Cameron and other people reacting to Mac’s passing,’ TSR writes.
‘I think I should probably not post anything …just to be smart,’ Cameron allegedly said in one of the texts as cited by TSR.
‘I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail,’ he said, according to reports.
This whole thing triggered a strong debate in the comments with some people blaming the dealer and others not.
