E! News has shared Cameron James Petitt has appeared in court on Thursday, where a judge ordered that he be held without bond. However, he is due for arraignment on Oct. 11.
Behind the Arrest Story
Nearly after one year of Mac Miller’s death, a man has been charged in connection with his death. Cameron James Pettit, a Hollywood Hills resident, was arrested on the charges alleging that he sold counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs containing fentanyl to Miller, just before two days his death. Pettit was arrested on Wednesday morning by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Fusion Task Force.
He was arrested pursuant to a criminal complaint filed last Friday that charges him with the distribution of a controlled substance, a press release from the United States Attorney Central District of California informed on Wednesday.
According to the affidavit on this case, Pettit agreed to give Miller with 30-milligram oxycodone pills, as well as cocaine and the sedative Xanax on September 4. But, when he made the delivery the morning of Sept. 5, he allegedly sold Miller those oxycodone pills which contained fentanyl.
The affidavit also informed that hours after news of Miller’s death came into limelight, Pettit sent a message to a friend writing, “Most likely I will die in jail.”
However, this also states that investigators believe that Miller died after taking the pills containing fentanyl provided by Pettit. On the other hand, there is another individual allegedly supplied Miller with other drugs before his death, according to the affidavit those drugs did not have fentanyl in it.
However, the Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed that authorities were called in Studio City, Calif where Miller was claimed dead at the scene at 11:51 a.m. on 7th September. Fentanyl is known as a killer and if convicted of the drug trafficking charge alleged in the complaint, Pettit might face a sentence of 20 years in prison.
