Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Indio Charged with Felony Drug Possession

Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Indio Charged with Felony Drug Possession

Indio Downey, the 20-year-old son of actor Robert Downey Jr., has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, according to TMZ.

Back in June, Indio was arrested after cops noticed he was smoking something out of a pipe while in the passenger seat of a friend’s car. He was in possession of cocaine at the time.

Because Indio is a first time offender, he is automatically entitled to enter a drug diversion program. In addition to the felony charge, he was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Robert, who famously struggled with addiction throughout his life, publicly thanked the Sheriff’s department for their intervention.

    Ouch! I wonder if Robert will blame Hollywood like Michael Douglas did when his son went to prison. He had a celebrity father–he didn’t stand a chance.

  • Good

    For his own sake I hope they are tough on him from the beginning. I wish him luck.

    Sad to think and say but he’s following in his Dads footsteps. I hope he makes it through this tough time. I wish him the best.

    Yeah but then asshole Justin Bieber gets away with everything, not fair, this kid just needs rehab and a cut out of his trust fund for those expenses…

  • Mac

    Well I imagine it will be hard to convince him to stop when he grew up seeing his father do every drug in the universe for so long and now he’s the most well paid actor in Hollywood. I guess he can only hope he has inherited the tolerance and metabolism capacity of his father.
