Second Man Arrested In Connection With Mac Miller's Death

An Arizona man has become the second person to be arrested on drug charges in the investigation of the overdose death of US rapper Mac Miller.

Havasu City police say 36-year-old Ryan Reavis has been charged with possession of marijuana and prescription drugs.

He was also charged with two weapons counts and is being held on $US50,000 ($AU74,000) bail.

He has not entered a plea, and police did not know if he has hired a lawyer.

Police gave no details on the connection but said the arrest was the result of the investigation into the overdose death of Miller, who died one year ago in his Los Angeles home.

Earlier this month, 28-year-old Cameron Pettit was charged with selling Miller drugs before his death. He has not yet entered a plea in the case.

A Pittsburgh native whose real name was Malcolm James Myers McCormick, Miller's rhymes included frank discussion of his depression and drug use, earning him fans among some of the biggest names in hip-hop.
