Democratic donor and activist Ed Buck has been arrested in Los Angeles and charged with battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Buck, according to prosecutors, is “a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness,” the LA Times reports.
A 37-year-old man was allegedly injected with methamphetamine on September 11, leading to an overdose. The man survived.
“That latest incident comes after two men were found dead in his Laurel Avenue apartment in Hollywood. In both cases, African American men — Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55 — had overdosed on methamphetamine inside. After the first death in 2017, authorities said there was insufficient evidence to file charges.”
