As the one year mark since Mac Miller's death quickly approaches, a federal investigation has led to the arrest of a man who allegedly is responsible for the late rapper's overdose.

Cameron James Pettit, 28, has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance for allegedly selling drugs laced with fentanyl to Mac Miller, according to a criminal complaint.

"Drugs laced with cheap and potent fentanyl are increasingly common, and we owe it to the victims and their families to aggressively target the drug dealers that cause these overdose deaths," U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said in a press release.

Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, died of an overdose on September 7, 2018 at the age of 26.

Pettit is set for an October 11 arraignment. If he is found guilty, he could face a maximum of 20 years in prison.
