Democratic Donor Ed Buck Finally Arrested After Third Man Overdoses in His Home, Charged with Operating a Drug House

Activist and political donor Ed Buck is facing criminal charges after a third man was found to have overdosed on methamphetamine in his apartment. Buck was arrested Tuesday night.

Ed Buck, a prominent California Democratic donor — has been arrested and charged with operating a drug house after a third man overdosed at his apartment.

This victim survived.

via TMZ:

Buck’s accused of injecting a man with methamphetamine at his residence last week, causing a nonfatal overdose … according to the L.A. County D.A.’s Office.

He’s facing 3 felony counts — battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house. He’s set to be arraigned Wednesday.

Buck’s arrest comes after months of public scrutiny following the deaths of 2 men inside his apartment. Both men died from overdoses, 18 months apart, the first in July 2017 and the second in January.

Their deaths were found to be accidental methamphetamine overdoses. Though Buck wasn’t charged in either incident, the mother of the first victim has filed a wrongful death suit against him.

Prosecutors reportedly allege in court docs that Buck uses his power to manipulate victims to participate in his sexual fetishes … including injecting them with narcotics.

Prosecutors want bail set at $4 mil.

If you weren’t clear as to why it took a third overdose for Ed to be arrested — his previous two victims were Black gay men and he’s very well connected.

He should rot in prison.
