Blood work taken after Anne Heche's fiery car crash last week shows the actress had cocaine in her system, police say.

"Based on the blood work, it revealed the presence of narcotics," Officer Lizeth Lomeli of the LAPD told Deadline on Wednesday.

Lomeli confirmed that the Emmy-winning actress is facing a possible felony DUI charge after cocaine was found in her system.

"However, additional testing is required because we have to rule out any substances that were administered by medical treatment," Lomeli said.

Heche, 53, is still in a coma and breathing with the assistance of a ventilator in an ICU. Police obtained a warrant to get a sample of her blood from the hospital.

Heche is in "extremely critical condition" after suffering severe 2nd- and 3rd-degree burn injuries from the August 5 incident.

A photo obtained by TMZ showed a vodka bottle in Heche's car after she first crashed into a garage, then sped off. The toxicology test ruled out alcohol in her system.

Heche was driving at a high rate of speed when her car ran off the road and collided with a residence in the 1700 block of Walgrove. The fiery crash destroyed the house, but the homeowner, her two dogs and a pet turtle escaped injury.

A GoFundMe launched by Lynne Mishele's neighbors raised over $132,000.

Cardi B downplayed reports that she urged guests to snort cocaine at her MET Gala after-party in NYC.

The incident went down when Cardi hosted the Boom Boom after-party at the Standard Hotel on Monday night. Videos circulating on social media show the rapper telling partygoers to "make sure y'all do that little..." - while gesturing under her nose with her finger.

The mom-of-three was heavily criticized on social media for appearing to encourage drug use.

The 29-year-old rapper was not amused that some people didn't get her "joke". She expressed frustration that she can't be herself anymore.

"I make one joke as a hostess because I am hosting a party and it gets twisted. Why can't every celebrity joke around and say slick s–t? I'm tired. I can't be myself anymore. Anything that will go on social media is always bad. If I could click my f–king feet three times and go back to f–king 2013 when I was just a regular bitch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That's when I was me."

Aspiring comedian Fuquan Johnson has died from a suspected overdose of cocaine laced with the powerful opioid painkiller fentanyl.

Johnson, 42, was found dead along with aspiring comedian Enrico Colangeli, 48, and Natalie Williamson, 33, at a house party in the Venice Beach neighborhood of Los Angeles, California on Saturday.

Johnson and Colangeli were longtime friends who once shared an apartment together, the Dailymail.com reports.

Aspiring comedienne Kate Quigley, left, was found alive but unresponsive inside the home. She was rushed to a hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

According to Dailymail.com, Quigley's condition improved overnight.

Fellow comedian Brian Redban shared a text message from the comedienne-model that read "I'm alive. Not great. But im OK."

In a follow-up text, Quigley allegedly wrote: "I have had a bad month...and this has ruined me.. hug everyone you love."

Johnson, right, and Colangeli, left, were friends who regularly performed at the HaHa Comedy Club in North Hollywood.

The comedy club changed its marquee to read: "Rest in peace Fuquan Johnson Enrico Coangelo [sic]. The post was captioned: "RIP to these legends."

It is unclear how many people attended the house party or who provided the tainted cocaine.

Fentanyl, which was developed for pain management in cancer patients, is 50-100 times more potent than morphine.

The LAPD is not investigating the overdoses as homicides.

Other celebrities who died from fentanyl overdoses include Prince, Tom Petty and Mac Miller.

According to the CDC, more than 83,000 people died from fentanyl overdoses in the United States in 2020.

The majority of cocaine seized by drug enforcement officers is "cut" with other substances by drug lords or street dealers to sell less pure cocaine and maximize profit.

Insiders say the prim and proper host confessed to a live audience that she helped her boyfriend "facilitate" selling cocaine when she was a teenager in college.

On Friday, Hall backtracked, saying her words were taken out of context.

Hall told DailyMail.com in a statement that she never "dealt drugs" in college. She said she was speaking about "part of an open and honest conversation about women" in prison.

Hall explained, "During an interview with prison rights advocate Topeka Sam, I shared a story about a bad situation I got myself into when I was 19. I never dealt drugs."

Even if she did deal drugs, it happened over 3 decades ago.

"I am now nearly 50 years old and was reflecting on a bad judgement call that could have turned worse. I say but for the grace of God, there go I. It was part of an open and honest conversation about women, incarceration and mistakes made."

Hall admitted producers edited the segment in which she reportedly confessed to dealing drugs.

"For legal reasons a portion of that segment was edited from the show. I hope my show can be a forum for sharing stories without shame or judgement - including a conversation we're having Friday on opioid addiction."

Lamar Odom

Online tabloid RadarOnline.com located Lamar Odom's alleged drug dealer, who tells the tabloid that Odom smoked $50K worth of cocaine over 3 years.

“He likes to party,” the alleged drug dealer told RadarOnline. “He’s a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he’s becoming … his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem.

The dealer added, “In my experience, he literally likes cocaine — he is a cocaine guy. He likes to smoke it,” added the man, who spoke to us on the condition we obscured his face and voice.”

The dealer told RadarOnline that Odom prefers to "freebase" cocaine, a process by which the user burns the coke to purify it, then inhales the fumes through a pipe.
