Al Gore's Son

Busted!

7/4/2007 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0705_goreiii_booking_photo_02-1Al Gore III, the 24-year-old son of Al Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession today. The former second-in-command's son was pulled over after allegedly driving his Prius 100 miles an hour down an Orange County freeway. (At least he was driving a Prius!) When deputies searched the car they found pot, along with Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall. He is currently being held at the Santa Ana Inmate Reception Center on $20,000 bail. 

This isn't Gore III's first arrest. He was charged with marijuana possession in 2003 and was ticketed for reckless driving in 2000 and 2002.

Al Gore should take his sons car away and make him ride a horse because that actually makes the environment more safer.

Pot shouldn't be illegal in the first place, so big deal. People who smoke it regularly don't get intoxicated like you do when you're drunk, so it's not as if he was drinking & driving. Mixing it with prescription drugs can make you drowsy, though, so hopefully he wasn't using the Xanax & Valium before driving.

Ha, ha ha ha ha. Too funny. Got nothing against 'God's" Almighty Green Bud...but it's just too funny that his kid doesn't fall too far from the tree. Karma is a lovely gift. Screw you Al Gore. Smoke the green bud...it'll do your body good.

This is funny and Al Gore the guy who say's he invented the internet and is the Godfather of global warming crap which is another way of the liberals to control the people. I think I'd take drugs if I had to listen to Big Al talk!!!
