Gary's 39-year-old son was on the boardwalk in Venice Beach yesterday ... when he explained how he woke up in an L.A. hospital this week after having "a little too much fun" with booze.

Jake says he's determined to get himself on a "straight path to clean living" -- and will take rehab seriously ... though he did not specify where or how long he will be seeking treatment.

These people have choices. Personally, I don't care about people going into rehab--why the big fuss? They seem to be proud of it, they should be ashamed for the way they wasted their lives. Too much money where celebrities are concerned. They have everything and they throw it away.

Jake Busey is a REALLY nice guy. I wish him all the best. And he's right, his dad needs to be in big movies again.

Rehabs are going to be as overcrowded as jails.
Whatever, good luck whoever you are.

Alcohol poisoning at 39 years old? Sounds like he's been at it a long time.

Jake Busy is a really awesome guy. I worked on a film called Codebreakers years ago that he was on up in Canada, and he was nice and charming with everyone. I wish him nothing but success! Oh, and I think he would be great on Celibrity Apprentice!
