Rock Legend Arrested for OD'ing in Front of Son

3/14/2011 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Social Distortion" drummer Casey Royer was arrested in Orange County last week -- after the 52-year-old punk legend allegedly OD'd on heroin in front of his 12-year-old son.

Casey Royer
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Casey was watching TV with his son when he experienced an overdose ... at which point his son ran next door for help ... and the neighbors called cops.

According to law enforcement, his house was littered with garbage and drug paraphernalia -- including needles -- when police arrived.

Casey -- who currently sings for the punk band D.I. -- was immediately hospitalized nearby and survived. He was arrested soon after.

Casey was officially charged today -- with one count of child endangerment, and one count of being under the influence of heroin. He's currently being held on $120,000 bail.

52yo? Looks 62, if not 72yo. Guess those drugs are really "winning". Hope they take his son away from him, before he gets involved in his daddy's antics.

Get your s/hit together douchebag or ima call you a useless piece of s/hit.

No excuses. NONE. I can't even imagine being raised by a POS SOB LOSER.

Just like Charlie Sheens kids. They can't catch a break, especially with Denise Richards for a mother. Sorry, but Sam and Lola are doomed to depression and/or insanity. Where are the grandparents?

I hate people like this.... get over yourself and your addiction any way you can *******!! When you have kids it is your responsibility to get your crap in order so you don't end up doing something like this. Break the cycle for crying out loud, for your kids sake!!!

Where is the little boy's mother? Like she didn't know her ex was doing this sort of thing? It was all over the place and there had to have been signs not to mention her son probably mentioned it.

Some women amaze me. She's as bad as the dad.
