Mac Miller's alleged drug dealer, Cameron James Pettit, was charged Wednesday with supplying drugs to the late rapper, who died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl on September 7, 2018. According to a criminal complaint filed in California, Miller asked Pettit to supply him with percocet, a painkiller that contains oxycodone. Instead, Pettit allegedly gave Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax. Investigators also unearthed some damning text messages sent by Pettit in the wake of Miller's death. After writing, "I think I should probably not post anything...just to be smart," Pettit said, "I am not great...Most likely I will die in jail." TMZ reports that Pettit was taken into custody on Wednesday morning.
