Michael Douglas' Son

Busted for Meth

8/3/2009 8:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0803_cameron_douglas_mug_ex-1We've learned Michael Douglas' son -- actor Cameron Douglas -- has been arrested in New York City for possession of methamphetamines with the intent to distribute.

It's not the first time Cameron has been busted for drugs. Back in 2007 he was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after cops found a syringe with liquid cocaine in a car he was in.

The mugshot in this article is from his 2007 arrest.

We're told the 30-year-old actor was taken into custody by federal authorities earlier today. He remains in custody.

19. Cuz they can never live up to mommy or daddy's fame...and that's the monkey on their back, so they get high and get numb so they don't have to face reality...the parent can be loving...Paul Newman's son died of an overdose. Think about it.

It is so sad to think that. Are there any statistics to show the rate of this compared to the average person or is it that rampant in society and just not reported unless it is a celeb or celeb kid. What about the kids that do not want to become celebs themselves do they fare better?

Good job, Michael! Where were you when your child started needing help? I worked in Hollywood for a while - as a nanny for a child of a celebrity - the focus is on the celebrity's careers.... the celebritiy's appearance.... the celebrity's needs.. this is a generalization, and not all celebrities are this self-obsessed..... but.... looking at Michael and his lack of former family values - it isn't hard to see - I know that he is doing much more as a dad with his second family - but no one should forget their first family - this poor man needs help.

The usual for Hollywood families is that while they pat themselves on the back in their old age, they can't even be there for their own flesh and blood. When you live a life of me-me-me selfishness, your kids wind up on drugs or die young. It happens all the time in LaLaLand. Real people parents with no money but plenty of quality time are better than egotistical celebs.

Anyone else notice a baseball size circle/discoloration on his forehead? Did the loser have a lobotomy?

To the parents of Cameron Douglas,

I have a son who has had problems with drugs, getting arrested the whole nine yards. Nothing helped. We bailed him out and helped him with lawyers. Didn't Work......The last time he called after being arrested for probation violation asking for help we ignored it, he was sentenced to 7 months........It was by far the biggest wake up call for our son. We now have our son back, he has completely withdrew from the life of drugs.................only because we did the hardest thing a parent could do. LET HIM GO TO JAIL. I worried every night until he came home. I knew he wasn't a hard core person, just someone who fell into the wrong path. Best thing in the world, big reality check!!!!!

11. What problems in this life, has caused him to become a druggie?

How do successful actors mess up their kids so they become like this?

They leave the child's Mother and marry Catherin Zeta Jones, who is young enough to be his daughter. Then make more children with her.

That empty stare looks ready to go postal. And especially with the geek glasses. What roles did this "actor" play? He looks like the fellow his daddy played in Falling Down! LOL!

Unlike CA authorities, in NY a perp could really do jail time for drugs...even if they *are* related to a B lister.
