    Default Robert Downey Jr's son arrested for cocaine possession

    Robert Downey Jr.'s son was arrested for cocaine possession in West Hollywood Sunday afternoon ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

    We're told Indio Downey was a passenger in a car at around 2 PM PT when cops drove up along side the vehicle and noticed the passenger was smoking something out of a pipe.

    An L.A. County Sheriff's deputy pulled the car over, did a search and allegedly found cocaine in Indio's possession. He was arrested and taken to jail for possession of cocaine.

    20-year-old Indio -- who appeared in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang -- posted his $10K bail and was released just after midnight Sunday.

    Robert Downey Jr. famously struggled with drug addiction and ended up in prison. The drugs that got him in so much trouble -- cocaine and heroin.

    So sad. Indio fell into the trap, too.

    I hope RDJ jumps on this and gets the kid some help. He is still young and maybe they can break the cycle now, versus 20 years down the road.

    I'm certain they will try. They already sent him to rehab for prescription pill addiction a few years ago.
    Sad...

    I guess I hadn't heard that the son had a problem with a pills in the past. Dang,....some things really are passed down through genetics and repeated behaviors. I am sure RDJ is very aware of the road his son is looking down at this moment. Prayers to them.

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

    Robert Downey, Jr. has released a statement following his 20-year-old sonIndio‘s arrest for cocaine possessionover 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 (viaTMZ). “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.

    Yeah it's not surprising but sad. I hope he doesn't struggle for as long and as hard as his dad did before he gets straightened out.

    Am I the only one absolutely thrilled to hear a parental statement from a celebrity thanking​ police instead of accusing them of malicious persecution - you know, the 'Lohan Defense?'

    Lesson- don't be smoking your pot pipe when you're carrying drugs in the car.

    Aw, this sucks. But I love RDJ's statement -- so much support, understanding and compassion, yet he didn't skimp on the accountability.

    I adore RDJ anyway, but his statement has only made it even more clear as to why. I think this kid will be ok. Hopefully. It's all up to him, of course. But still, I hope.
