One Michigan drug dealer is facing serious consequences after appearing on the Netflix show “Dope.”
Ryan Zettell, 21, was arrested in February for distributing drugs across Oakland County. He later admitted to police that he appeared on “Dope” as Ozone.
During the show, he exposed how he was able to access the drugs and bragged about their pure nature, compared to substances sold by competitors. Zettell was getting drugs from all over the world, mostly ecstasy. He made an estimated $60,000 a year doing this.
Although he was making a living, Zettell revealed he never intended to be a kingpin. During the filming, he said he was attending college and going into criminal justice.
“I’m gonna have in the back of my mind, ‘I can get caught. I’m not untouchable,’” Ozone said.
Catch up to him, it did. Zettell must serve at least three years in prison after pleading guilty to six felony charges.
According to MLive, three counts of Controlled Substance – Delivery/Manufacture (Cocaine, Heroin, or another narcotic) less than 50 grams, two counts of Controlled Substance – Delivery/Manufacture (Ecstasy/MDMA), and one count of Controlled Substance – Delivery/Manufacture (Cocaine, Heroin, or another narcotic) less than 25 grams.
He faces up to 20 years.
