Democratic Party donor and political activist Ed Buck was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday night and charged with several felonies, including running a drug house, following the overdose deaths of at least two gay black men at Buck’s home in the past two years. Buck’s arrest comes after a third man overdosed on methamphetamine at Buck’s apartment last week. That man survived. Black LGBTQ activists and the family members of the two men who died have been calling on prosecutors for months to file criminal charges against Buck, accusing him of being a sexual predator. If convicted, Buck faces a maximum of five years in prison.
