Cameron Douglas has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of a hypodermic needle. Charges were filed against 28-year-old Cameron Douglas and his friend, 30-year-old Christopher Lane.

At a pretrial hearing, charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance were added for Douglas, based on the testimony of a Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputy.

The charges stem from their arrest on July 22, when police found Douglas and Lane in a car near a Santa Barbara, Calif. motel -- and found a syringe on the floorboard with liquid cocaine in it. According to the arresting officer, Lane told him the syringe was his.

Both men will be back in court for an arraignment on November 16.

Cameron Douglas appeared with his father and grandfather, Kirk Douglas, in the 2003 film "It Runs in the Family."

It's curious only the passenger was charged...how could they know who it belonged to if it was on the floor? Shoot ing cocaine is 10x more powerful than snorted powder. My cousin, a seasoned druggie, was addicted to it in that form and she said it was much more addictive than heroine and impossible to kick. She ended up killing herself with it . He needs help badly if he wants to live...these fathers who ignore their first born children, re-marry and become doted dads disgust me. Michael says he realizes he wasn't a good father to Cameron, nor was his father a good dad to him, he should have realized how messed up kids get when ignored by a famous parent.

Another case of whos who gets a break instead of the mandatory sentence. The Judge should be checked out for going against the law on the books , don't worry Cameron , Daddy will pay the 300 grand. If it was me or you , we would be hanging on the bars for the full 10 years. I guesstimate he'll be out in no more then 3years. MD and KZJ are just plain old rich snobs who think they are soooooo much better then the rest of us .
