update_graphic_red_bar
8:00 AM PDT:  Robert Downey Jr. just released the following statement to TMZ: “Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he's capable of being." 

Downey adds ... "We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale.”

Robert Downey Jr.'
s son was arrested for cocaine possession in West Hollywood Sunday afternoon ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told Indio Downey was a passenger in a car at around 2 PM PT when cops drove up along side the vehicle and noticed the passenger was smoking something out of a pipe.

An L.A. County Sheriff's deputy pulled the car over, did a search and allegedly found cocaine in Indio's possession.  He was arrested and taken to jail for possession of cocaine.

20-year-old Indio -- who appeared in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang -- posted his $10K bail and was released just after midnight Sunday.

Robert Downey Jr. famously struggled with drug addiction and ended up in prison.  The drugs that got him in so much trouble -- cocaine and heroin.

U think idiots like his son see his father using and the struggle he had to go thru wld make u not even think about drugs in general. I guess Robert Downey has to now fix his son bc the only example he saw was his father on it .

Very sad. The father obviously cleaned up his act a long time ago. It's a shame the son didn't learn.

So we are to assume dude was smoking cocaine in one form or another?

That would suggest dude has graduated from the snorting of said cocaine and has had a "problem" for a while.

As to the name "Indio" that would be exactly like naming your daughter "Barstow" and thereby limiting her future to smoking cocaine and stripping.
