Robert Downey Jr Son Arrested

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.

This kids a moron. After watching what happened to his dad and how hard RDJ struggled to overcome his addictions, he definitly should know better. What does he think, he won't end up that way. I don't understand how folks who see how messed up & people who die over it still want to try it and believe they'll escape that path. When I was 8 one of my neighbors was a crack whore, I was horrified at what she looked like and her life, scared me straight. I just hope he wises up and learns from this.

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.
