Legendary musician Phil Collins' son Simon Collins was arrested in England this weekend for possession of illegal drugs, according to People Magazine.

He was reportedly arrested and questioned by police in Wiltshire, England on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs and for the possession of Class B drugs. He was then released on bail.

According to a police statement released to People, "A 37-year-old man from [the town of] Devizes has been arrested... The bail will run until the end of August." 

Unlike his half-sister Lily Collins, who focused her efforts on acting, Simon, 37, followed in his father's footsteps by becoming a musician.

Simon made his stage debut at 12 alongside his father and went on to become the lead drummer and vocalist for the British-based band Sound Of Contact.

Simon is the son of Phil Collins and his first wife Andrea Bertorelli.
