Pitt has been slapped with charges of distribution of a controlled substance, as per a 42-page criminal complaint which was released on Wednesday. Federal prosecutors allege that the 28-year-old was the one who supplied Mac with 'percs', short for Percocet.
As per the charging sheet, Mac, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, acquired drugs from two different sources. One supply of drugs came from a prostitute who gave the late entertainer pure oxy, hydrocodone, amphetamine, Xanax and coke. Pettit supplied Mac with a supply of fentanyl-laced oxy pills, cocaine, and Xanax on top of his previous supply.
The prosecutors also found that the prostitute worked with a madam, who is allegedly associated with Pettit.
An investigation into Pettit's online activity revealed that he had directly messaged friends on Instagram shortly after the rapper's death, telling them that he should lay low for a while. He also wrote that he shouldn't post anything as a reaction just to be smart. To an associate who asked him how he was doing, Pettit said: "I am not great...Most likely I will die in jail."
As per the 42-page criminal complaint, Pettit was actually one of three people who supplied Mac with counterfeit prescription pills.
