Robert Downey, Jr.'s son arrested for cocaine possession

By Madeline Smith,

Robert Downey Jr.’s son, Indio, has been arrested for cocaine possession.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department told CBSLA that the arrest for felony narcotic possession took place around 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Indio was in a car full of friends smoking pipes when an officer pulled up next to the car at an intersection. Downey’s son had cocaine on him and was taken to jail, where he was later released on a $10,000 bail.

The 20-year-old recently signed on for the movie Run for Roxanne. The only other film he has been in is Kiss Kiss Bang Bang when he was a child.

The apple appears to not have fallen far from the tree. It can be seen in People’s archives that back in the '90s Robert Downey, Jr. struggled from drug addiction. Back in 1996, Downey was put in a court-ordered 45-day treatment facility for cocaine and heroin addiction. Downey talked to Rolling Stone about his drug past.

"Smoking dope and smoking coke, you are rendered defenseless. The only way out of that hopeless state is intervention," said Downey.

Maybe Indio’s arrest will be his intervention.
