Cops: Cameron Douglas Dealing $18K of Crystal Meth

by at . Comments

The son of Academy Award winner Michael Douglas has been arrested - and not for the first time - but Cameron Douglas has really outdone his drugged-out self.

Police say that the younger Douglas, 30, was in the middle of a deal to sell an eye-popping pile of crystal meth before he was snared by federal authorities.

The sometime-actor / sometime-DJ was busted back on July 28 at the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District by a DEA task force, police sources report.

He'd been staying at the hotel for some time in a room rented by his dad. When the authorities barged in, they found the place a mess and Cameron "very strung out."

An informant had told the investigators that Cameron Douglas was the middle man in a deal to move a half-pound of crystal meth from California to New York to sell.

The drugs were intercepted before they got to New York.

Crystal methamphetamine sells for approximately $80 a gram - meaning Douglas had allegedly dealt about $18,000 worth. Not a small-time sentence, we'd guess.

Michael Douglas was informed and was "furious," a source said. A spokesman for Michael has not return calls for comment. Nor has the U.S. Attorney's Office.

As of this report, Cameron Douglas is still being held in custody.

In 2007, when the dude was still a n'er-do-well and not a full-fledged drug dealer, he was arrested with another man after being pulled over in Santa Barbara, Calif., with a bottle of liquid cocaine and a syringe in the car.

In 1999, when he was working as a DJ at the Tunnel club in Chelsea, he was busted buying cocaine with a gal pal from a drug dealer being tailed by cops.

Aside from getting arrested on drug charges, Cameron Douglas is best known for starring with his father and grandfather in 2003's It Runs in the Family.

I was busted with half a kilo of cocaine in NYC, distribution and possesion. Back in 2006, I was 30, I accepted my wrongdoings and did my time. I came to realize how I was part of vicious circle that contributed poison to society. Today I make an honset living, bit I admit I still do cocaine. Thats how terrible addiction is, it keeps coming back." Really...? possession of half a key & distribution charges three years ago and you've already done your time, been released & secured a straight job that you can live on? Well Congratulations! I know plenty of non-felons that can't find any job, let alone make an "honest living." I think that maybe, just maybe, the cocaine is working for you. Good Luck with that, Mr. Montana, Jr.

Uh yah it happens even to the less wealthy...WRONG IS WRONG and he is old enough to understand that. Why wouldn't he ask for help if he wanted it? My life was not easy either but you know what? YOU are responsible for your own actions. I've told that to my sons too since day one and they can't blame anyone for their wrong doings and to this day they are very responsible. Bottom line is he like many Hollywood Children are spoiled and have been handed everything too. It has nothing to do with his Father not being there. GROW A SPINE ALREADY...we are all good kids until we get in trouble. Hopefully yes he will get help and HOPEFULLY he will learn from it, or m'be just end up back in jail. DO THE CRIME, DO THE TIME.
