A wealthy Democratic donor has been arrested and accused of running a drug den after a spate of fatal overdoses at his home in California.
Ed Buck, 65, has been charged with administering methamphetamine, battery and maintaining a drug house.
Two men have died of overdoses at his West Hollywood home while a third survived after fleeing Mr Buck's apartment last week, prosecutors say.
Mr Buck's lawyer told CBS News he will fight the charges "vigorously".
Mr Buck, who is wealthy, politically connected and white, has come under scrutiny over the overdose deaths, which involved "vulnerable" black men.
Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said on Tuesday she remains "deeply concerned for the safety of people whose life circumstances may make them more vulnerable to criminal predators".
"With this new evidence, I authorised [sic] the filing of criminal charges against Ed Buck."
Prosecutors have asked for bail to be set at $4m (£3m), calling Mr Buck a "violent, dangerous sexual predator" who targeted the homeless and those battling drug addiction.
Mr Buck, an LGBT activist who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates, is expected in court on Wednesday. He could see a total of five years and eight months in state prison if convicted.
"From his home, in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes," prosecutors said in court documents.
"These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims."
The latest alleged victim, who is 37 and remains unnamed, was allegedly injected with high doses of "meth" at Mr Buck's apartment on 4 September, after which he sought medical attention.
He returned to the apartment on 11 September and was allegedly injected with meth again.
When the man believed he was overdosing, prosecutors say Mr Buck refused to help and "thwarted" his attempts to obtain assistance. The man allegedly fled and was able to call for help from a gas station.
Police investigating Mr Buck's apartment after the man's escape found hundreds of photographs of men in "compromising positions", according to the Los Angeles Times.
Inside Buck's apartment, from The Daily Mail:
In a photo obtained by DailyMail.com, Buck smokes meth with a painfully thin, drug-addicted homeless young black man in his apartment - a partner he had found on the street and offered $300 to carry out his bizarre 'fetish' requests. Buck ordered the man to wear dirty white long johns and black leather 'f***ing boots'
The Daily Mail link also has an image of a toolbox filled with toys and plugs, which I decided to exclude here.

Not surprisingly, DEMS and organizations who accepted his money and political support amazingly avoided cameras and microphones regarding commenting on this issue. Well...what little coverage a complicit MSM is giving this story.
Where's Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton? Why so silent? A wealthy, white privilege, DEM donor and supporter exploits and preys upon homeless Black men. In a Blue State, a Blue City and a Blue District. Isn't that 75% of the definition of "White Nationalism"?
