Michael Douglas' Son Cameron Beaten in Prison

by at . Comments

Michael Douglas' son, Cameron Douglas, reportedly has been beaten in a Pennsylvania prison, suffering a broken finger and a broken leg in the process.

Cameron Douglas, 34, suffered the injuries after a New York City crime boss put a $100 bounty on his head during the prison flag-football league season.

The reason? He was a "rat," a prison source told the New York Post.

Although he is serving time at a federal prison in Loretto, Pa., Douglas was in New York recently to testify against a former drug supplier of his.

Douglas, who's in prison for dealing crystal meth, reportedly dropped out of the league where he was targeted, he nonetheless turned up badly injured.

The actor's son blamed his injuries on a handball game, the source said, and a doctor's aide reportedly misdiagnosed the break as a sprain at first.

"You don’t break a femur playing handball," the source told the Post, adding, "[Cameron Douglas] is still walking around on crutches two months later."

Douglas was hit with a five-year sentence in 2010. An additional 4.5-year term was tacked onto that after he tried to have drugs smuggled into jail.
