Report: Michael Douglas' son busted again in prison for drugs

Michael Douglas’ son Cameron, can’t stay clean. He got busted this month for having drugs in his system at the federal prison in Loretto, Pa., where he’s serving a 10-year stint for dealing, The Post reports.
Douglas failed a urinalysis and was immediately sent to solitary confinement the first week of January, according to a prison source.
No word on whether he’ll face additional jail time for the infraction or how long he’ll stew in the hole.
Recently, Douglas suffered a broken leg and finger behind bars after a crime-family captain put a $100 bounty on him for being a “rat,” a prison insider says.
The source says that Douglas mysteriously suffered the injuries after a New York City mobster offered payment to anyone who hurt the drug-dealing scion during flag-football season this fall at Loretto, Pa.
“He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted,” says the source. “He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don’t break a femur playing handball.”
Douglas, who is doing a nearly 10-year stretch for dealing crystal meth and smuggling in drugs for himself while in the pokey, was inadvertently exposed as a turncoat by his shrink during a bail hearing in 2010.
The insider says that the pampered, baby-faced Douglas has “gone gangster” in the joint, reshaping himself by pumping iron and getting prison tattoos.
Cameron, who turned rat and got five years instead of 10 in 2009 — only to get an extra 4 1/2 years for smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center — has been working as a weekend orderly in a housing unit and earning $1.65 per month.
He is not eligible to be released until 2018.
