Democratic donor Ed Buck has been charged with operating a drug house after a 37-year-old man suffered a nonfatal overdose at his apartment last week.

TMZ's obtained video of Buck slumped over in the back of a cop vehicle as he's hauled away from his West Hollywood home.as cops and crime lab investigators made their way into his place.

Two men have died of overdoses at his West Hollywood home while a third survived after fleeing Mr Buck's apartment last week, prosecutors say.

Currently, the political donor is facing serious felony charges of maintaining a drug house, battery causing serious injury, and administering methamphetamine.

Buck is scheduled to be arraigned in court Wednesday.

In their bail motion, however, prosecutors specifically blamed Buck's actions for the two deaths and they alleged he personally gave a unsafe dose of methamphetamine to a man who survived an overdose earlier this month. Buck was not charged in those deaths because authorities claimed there was insufficient evidence. "With this new evidence, I authorized the filing of criminal charges against Ed Buck."The District Attorney's Office called Buck "a violent, unsafe sexual predator" who "mainly preys on men made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness."Using the bait of narcotics, money and shelter, the defendant lures these vulnerable victims to his house", according to the District Attorney's Office's bail request."From his home, in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes".

Prosecutors want bail set at $4 mil.

"It's unfortunate that it's taken a third overdose for the [Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department] to finally act", Hussain Turk, the attorney representing Moore's family said.

The Washington Examiner noted that immediately following the second man's death, "a spokesperson for Clinton, who received $3,950 from Buck in 2016 through her campaign and Ready PAC, also did not respond to questions about returning the donations". "I've become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that", Moore wrote, according to his family's website. Both of them were black and gay men. "But I'll let Ed Buck do it for now". He is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man with methamphetamine who prosecutors said almost died.

In Aug. 2018, Nixon moved to have excerpts from Moore's journal publicized so Buck would be prosecuted. KABC-TV of Los Angeles reported that he faces up to five years and eight months in state prison if convicted.

"These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims", the prosecutors wrote, according to the Times. Both Moore and another man found dead at Buck's house, Timothy Dean, were black. Paramedics found Moore on a mattress in the living room, the coroner's report said.

Dean's death reignited calls for justice, and in February, Los Angeles activists delivered a petition, signed by tens of thousands of people, demanding a thorough investigation into the Democratic donor.
