Jackson Used Employees' Names to Score Drugs

7/10/2009 3:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson went to a variety of doctors to get strong narcotics and used multiple aliases (including the names of several employees), this according to notes compiled during the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's investigation back in 2004.

Sheriff's detectives interviewed Chris Carter, who worked as Jackson's bodyguard prior to the Sheriff's raid of Jackson's home in 2003. According to Sheriff's Department notes obtained by TMZ, Carter said he would get Xanax prescriptions for Jackson under various fictitious names. Carter told detectives that Jackson would even use his name and the names of other employees to score prescriptions.

In addition to using his name, Carter said Jackson would use the names of Frank Tyson (a Jackson employee who was a prominent figure in the molestation trial, having had numerous contacts with the accuser's family), Jesus Salas (Ranch manager) and Joe Marcus (another Jackson employee) to get prescriptions.

Various pill bottles were found at Jackson's Neverland Ranch. One bottle of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax) was prescribed for Frank Tyson by Dr. Arnold Klein. A bottle of Prednisone found at the Ranch was also prescribed by Dr. Klein in the name of Peter Midani.

A bottle of Percocet, a narcotic painkiller, was found with the name Michael Armstrong, prescribed by Dr. Gerald Labiner.

A bottle of ERY-TAB, an antibiotic, was found with the name "M,M." The prescribing doctor was Dr. Carey Logan from Las Vegas.

A prescription receipt from a pharmacy was found for Alprazolam (generic Xanax) and written for Frank Tyson by Dr. William VanValin. Another receipt from Dr. VanValin was for written for Xanax in the name of Manuel Rivera.

Who will fill out a prescription with a person named "M,M". That right there is shady even if it was an antibiotic.

I heard he was taking Thorazine which is a powerful horse tranquilizer. That's tough stuff. Someone should have reigned him in a long time ago. But who can reign in MJ? No one.

Those prescriptions prescribed by other doctors are clearly emergency visits to the hospital. Does anyone remember Michael's hospital visits? They prescribe the good stuff, no refills and it explains why it's a different doctor. That's all that investigation is saying. Isn't this stuff common sense?

Addicts will use any means possible to get their fix, I did. Addicts have lied, cheated, stolen, resorted to murder, whatever it takes to get your fix you will do and keep doing to get high, escape and have your way or go the way of your addiction. The addiction is very powerful, it keeps calling out, more, more, more, you never get enough especially if you have the financial resources and enablers like M.J. had. The best scenerio for any addict and I know many have thought about this, hae all the money you need, all the enablers, the security to keep the truth and love out of your life like M.J. did, keep going until your dead like M.J. I was truly blessed when I got sober some (34) years ago, there was no one left in my life to enable me, my parents gave up and disowned me, no friends left, no money, and I was facing two counts of attempted murder to bbot. Two ways left for me, go to jail or get sober fortunately I chose to get sober, go to treatment. Thank GOD. I wish M.J. had found his bottom, so many do not and die amiserable, tortured death, no one can possibly imagine that kind of isolation and addiction, it is truly hell on earth. There is HOPE, you can get FREE, SOBER, STRAIGHT, especially when you become aware of what you are doing to yourself and others. I equate this entire process to the title of my book, "MY MIND HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN,"

I'm not buying this crap that Michael was a drug addict. Yes, therewere significant periods in his life when he became dependant on painmedications. Those were during the most stressful periods of his lifestarting with that 1993 child abuse investigation in addition toMichael starting his tour in Thailand. And probably again in duringthe 2005 trial when he was in alot of physical, psychological andemotional turmoil. But this nonsense that he was basically apill-popping junkie is just that----nonsense. Why do I say that?Because how can a regularly drug addict be lucid enough to be theexcellent, hands-on father that many people say that he was? Howcould he be such a father if he was strung out on drugs? Also peoplefrom Lou Ferrigno to others who saw or talked to Michael days, weeksand even month or two before he died, said Michael was in top shapeand was excited and animated and pumped up for these O2 shows. All ofthe dancers and singers who rehearsed with him said he was in goodshape, confident and in good spirits and there were no signs of himbeing 'high' or 'out of it'.All people close to him said he wasstrong and happy. And how could Michael Jackson pass all the physical tests by AEG in order to do these shows? He passed all histest. IF he indeed was taking all these pills, how come he passed histests? This drug addict angle is being pushed way too far.

That's illegal and they should be arrested. Those Dr.'s have no ethics, in my opinion, and they probably aren't diagnosing their current patients properly. They seem greedy too. I good Dr. would have turned him away.
