Demi Lovato in the hospital after an overdose scare
Narcan reverses the effects of an overdose of narcotic drugs. Dr. Daniel Bober sheds light on addiction in America.
Brandon Johnson, who are admitted to the show by Demi Lovato and “dirty” drugs with a prescription of the night that she overdosed, is a wanted man.
The Los Angeles County D. A. issuance of a warrant for Johnson’s arrest, reports TMZ.
Johnson, 31, failed to appear for an arraignment stemming from his June arrest for possession of cocaine and DUI.
Once Johnson was arrested, he will be held on a $26,000 bail, the site reports.
The June failure is just a blip on Johnson’s long rap sheet.
In March he was arrested for felony possession of drugs and a firearm. He allegedly had $10,000 cash on his person and with a fully loaded semi-automatic pistol.
When police searched Johnson’s residence, they reportedly also discovered “additional narcotics, ammunition, [and a] high-capacity pistol, rifle magazines and three pistols, one of which was stolen,” the Los Angeles Daily News reported at the time.
Although Johnson admitted to supplying Lovato, 26, with prescription drugs, claimed he did not “pharmaceutical” — allegedly oxycodone laced with fentanyl — he is not facing any charges in connection with her July overdose, because the incident was being treated as a medical emergency, not a crime.
Johnson claimed that he freebased with Lovato the night that she overdosed and left after she fell asleep.
Hours later, an assistant called 911 when they found Lovato unconscious and unresponsive on her bed and thought that the singer had died.
Responding paramedics reportedly revived Lovato with Narcan, an emergency medication that reverses the effects of overdose opiate.
The “Tell Me you Love Me” singer was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles two weeks after the overdose and is currently in a rehab.
