Michael Douglas’ Son May Get Life In Prison For Drug Trafficking
August 8, 2009
US (ChattahBox) – Cameron Douglas, son of actor Michael Douglas, has been in trouble with the law before. But this time he may end up spending his life behind bars, after being arrested for drug trafficking large amounts of methamphetamine across the country. Cam has quite a history of this: The New York Post is reporting that in 1999 he was arrested at New York’s ‘Tunnel club,’ when he tried buying cocaine from a dealer who was being tailed by the Feds. And in 2007 he was arrested again – this time in Santa Barbara, with a bottle of liquid cocaine and a syringe in his car.
According to the recent arrest warrant, Douglas received tens of thousands of dollars worth of meth between 2006 and 2009, and then sent them via FedEX to New York City.
It was an entire operation conducted with several unnamed accomplices, who have been described as ‘cooperating with the DEA’. It isn’t clear if their assistance led to Douglas’ arrest.
The 30-year old part-time actor and DJ had been staying at the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District, in a room paid for by his father. On July 28, the DEA raided the room and found Cameron strung out on meth, with around half-a-pound of the drug worth over $15,000 in the room, which the DEA says the actor was involved in a deal to sell in LA.
He has been charged with two counts of possessing and distributing meth, each of which could possibly land him life in prison, with a minimum of 10 years.
