Michael Douglas "Devastated" By Son's Arrest

For the first time in months there's a different Michael making headlines--but these aren't the kind of headlines Michael Douglas was hoping for.

Michael's son Cameron Douglas was recently arrested for possession of methamphetamines with the intent to distribute and Michael is said to be "devastated" over the arrest.

A statement released by the Michael and his former wife Diandra Luker said: "The family is devastated and very disappointed in Cameron's recent behavior. Any family who has dealt with substance abuse knows how devastating it can be."

Cameron is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York after he violated the terms of his home detention by asking his girlfriend to smuggle him heroin hidden in an electric toothbrush. Idiots.

He was initially released on bail and was placed on house arrest in his apartment in Manhattan but after he was caught allegedly selling drugs at New York's Hotel Gansevoort last month, he was thrown back into the slammer.

In 2007, he was arrested in California for possession of a controlled substance when liquid cocaine was discovered in the car he was driving. If he's found guilty of supplying narcotics he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life. What kind of sentence do you think he deserves?
