Robert Downey, Jr. Releases Statement on Son Indio's Arrest

Robert Downey, Jr. has released a statement following his 20-year-old son Indio‘s arrest for cocaine possession over the weekend.

“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,” the 49-year-old Iron Man actor said in his statement (via TMZ). “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.”

In some more positive news for Robert, he was just named the Most Powerful Actor in the World by Forbes for the mag’s Celebrity 100 list.

Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Indio Arrested for Cocaine Possession

Robert Downey Jr.‘s son Indio (pictured here back in May 2008) was arrested this weekend for cocaine possession, according to TMZ.

The 20-year-old was driving around in the passenger seat with one of his friends on Sunday (June 29) at around 2pm PT in West Hollywood, Calif. when a cop pulled up alongside the car and noticed the passenger smoking out of a pipe.

The car was pulled over and an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy did a search, which resulted in allegedly finding cocaine in Indio‘s possesion. He was arrested, taken to jail, and then posted his $10,000 bail just after midnight.

Robert famously struggled with drug addiction and spent time in prison before cleaning up his act and rebooting his career.

UPDATE: Read the statement that Robert released about his son and addiction.
