Prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck is ARRESTED for running a drug den...

• By Associated Press and Reporter

Prosecutors say Ed Buck is 'a violent, dangerous sexual predator' who offered drugs, money and shelter to vulnerable addicts in exchange for participation in sexual fetishes, including administering dangerous drug doses. 

Prosecutors allege Buck provided the meth that killed two men who were found in his apartment in 2017 and this January. 

Gemmel Moore, 26, died in 2017. Timothy Dean, 55, died early this year. 

Authorities allege that Buck personally injected drugs into a man who survived an overdose this month.

The alleged victim entered Buck's apartment and the donor 'personally and deliberately' administered a large dose of methamphetamine, according to the Los Angeles Times

Prosecutors say that the man grew concerned that he was given an exceedingly high dosage, and left.

The man is alleged to have returned to Buck's apartment a week later on September 11.

Authorities allege that Buck again gave the man 'two dangerously large' doses of methamphetamine, resulting in an overdose.
