Ed Buck, a famous Democratic donor and LGBT activist in Los Angeles, has been taken in by the police and charged with running a “drug den”, with prosecutors claiming he is an extremely dangerous individual who is a threat to the society.
Prosecutors have alleged that Buck is a “violent, dangerous sexual predator” who “preys on men made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness” the legal documents obtained revealed.
With respect to the recent overdose at his home, Buck reportedly administered a big dose of meth to the victim on September 4, and he left to get medical treatment after he was worried he was suffering from an overdose.
The docs say the man came back on September 11 and Buck “personally and intentionally” administered him with 2 more huge doses of the drug. When the guy began displaying symptoms of an overdose, Buck quickly thwarted his attempts to get help. However, the guy ran and called 911 from a gas station located close by.
Buck is headed to be arraigned in court Wednesday. Prosecutors are expected to set his bail to be set at $4 million. If found guilty, Buck will face up to five years and eight months in California state prison.
What could be his most recent crime, Buck allegedly brought the man to his home earlier this month and injected him with methamphetamine. A few days later, the man came back to Buck’s house. He was administered again and suffered an overdose, according to court documents obtained by KTLA.
In July 2017, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found dead in Mr. Buck’s apartment after a meth overdose. Mr. Moore was seen naked on a mattress along with a bunch of drug paraphernalia and sex toys, officials said, and the death was initially declared as an accident
Buck’s family refused to comment on the proceedings.
