According to various outlets, Cameron James Petit was charged and taken into custody on Wednesday (September 4) morning for allegedly selling Mac Miller the Fentanyl-laced drugs that led to his overdose almost one year ago.

Pettit, who was arrested Wednesday morning in Hollywood Hills, is charged with allegedly supplying Miller with fake oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, as well as allegedly giving him cocaine and Xanax.

Miller died on September 7, 2018 of an accidental overdose. The drugs in Miller's system included fentanyl, cocaine, and ethanol, the coroner found.

In another, responding to someone asking how he was doing, he allegedly said: "I am not great". Authorities believe Miller snorted those pills prior to his death, the release added. According to officials, the narcotics were sold to Miller two days before his fatal overdose. Not only that, but the documents allegedly cite some of Pettit's DMs, many of which were sent following Mac Miller's death.

"Any chance I can get 10 of those, 10 bars and a ball?" "Move to another country". According to the criminal complaint, he is one of three people who supplied Miller with the counterfeit drugs.

Per the docs, prosecutors claim Mac had asked Pettit for "percs" - short for percocet, a prescribed painkiller full of oxycodone - and that the dealer ended up supplying the pills that contributed to Mac's overdose death a year ago.

He is expected to make his first court appearance on Wednesday afternoon in United States District Court in Los Angeles.

TMZ reveals that Mac Miller was given the pills without knowledge of their true nature, under the impression they were something else.

At the time of his death, his family released a statement that read: "Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26".
