Robert Downey Jr.’s son, Indio Downey, was arrested in West Hollywood, California for cocaine possession.
According to ET, the arrest “occurred after a traffic stop and investigation near the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and La Cienega. Indio was a passenger in the car”.
He posted $10,000 bail and was released Monday morning.
Downey Jr. released the following statement to ET following his son’s arrest: “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. 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.”
