Robert Downey Jr. certainly had his share of run-ins with the law in his youth, and also did a bit more than dabbling with drugs for quite a few years, as well. It seems his former lifestyle has rubbed off on his son, however, as his 20-year-old son has now been charged with felony drug possession.
As TMZ previously reported, the 20-year-old was arrested in June after cops noticed he was a passenger in a car in West Hollywood … smoking something out of a pipe. Authorities say Indio — who appeared in “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” — was in possession of cocaine.
Sources tell TMZ … Indio — a first-time offender — is automatically entitled to a drug diversion program.
In addition to the felony, Indio has been charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Robert Downey Jr. thanked the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. for what he called “their intervention.”
Jeez, what’s wrong with kids? Here’s hoping he can get some help, serve his time and turn his life around like his father did.
