A man in Hollywood was arrested Wednesday morning for his connection in the death of Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller.

Cameron Pettit was arrested on federal charges that he sold counterfeit drugs that contained fentanyl to Miller just two days before he died.

Miller died on September 7, 2018 from a drug overdose in Studio City, CA.

An autopsy showed that Miller died from a mix of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

Fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin.

Prosecutors in the case claim Miller had asked Petti for Percocet’s, a painkiller full of oxycodone.

Pettit is expected to appear before a United States District Court in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The rapper, whose work brought him wide respect in the hip-hop community, was in a two-year relationship with Ariana Grande that ended earlier in 2018.
