A Canadian man who visited San Diego was charged with rape by intoxication by the district attorney’s office.

Whistler resident Nelson Drake, 39, was arrested in Dallas, Texas on Feb. 20 after an arrest warrant for $1 million was placed the day before. He was then extradited to San Diego and placed in the South Bay Detention Facility.

At Drake’s arraignment, prosecutors said the rape occurred when he was in San Diego for a business convention.

Drake’s bail was placed at $100,000. If convicted, he faces up to eight years in prison.
