Michael Douglas' Son Beaten After Crime Boss Issues $100 Bounty


Cameron Douglas Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas has been beaten in a Pennsylvania prison after a crime boss put a $100 bounty on him for 'being a rat.' A source told the New York Post that Cameron, 34, suffered a broken leg and finger after a New York mobster offered payment to anyone who hurt the convicted drug dealer. Is it really worth the hassle for $100? 

Anyway, somebody obviously wanted the cash, and duly gave Cameron a severe beating. The insider said, "He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted. He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don't break a femur playing handball." Douglas is currently serving a 10-year stretch for dealing crystal meth and smuggling drugs for himself while in prison. He was accidently exposed as a 'snitch' during a bail hearing in 2010, when Dr Robert Millman let slip that Douglas had agreed to testify against his suppliers, the Mexican immigrant brothers David and Eduardo Escalera. His father Michael and mother Diandro Douglas have visited Cameron in prison, though not together. The gangster allegedly involved in the beating is "the self-proclaimed King of the Italians' who "won't tolerate rats." 

Cameron - who has reportedly reshaped himself in prison by pumping irons and getting tattoos - is not eligible for release until 2018. He has been working as a weekend orderly in a housing unit for $1.65 per month.

Michael Douglas' Son Beaten: Cameron Douglas Hurt Following $100 Bounty


Michael Douglas Cameron Douglas

Michael Douglas' son, Cameron Douglas, has reportedly been beaten inside prison, leaving him with a broken leg, and broken fingers, The New York Post Reports.

"He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted," explained a source. "He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don't break a femur playing handball." Apparently, the injury was misdiagnosed, and so a broken leg was treated as a sprain, causing blood clots. "She thought it was a sprain, so he wants to sue this woman. He's still walking around on crutches two months later." Douglas has been getting used to prison life since he became a "rat", but its that label that earned him his beating, after a crime-family captain put a $100 bounty on him. "He recently had his initials inscribed on his neck and big stars on his shoulders, with each year of his incarceration in each star: '10, '11, '12. And he's currently getting a scroll on his back. They are being done by his best prison pal, Billy Trent, and he's paid over $1,000 so far for all the ink."

Douglas was sentenced to a five-year sentence in 2010 after pleading guilty to charges of distributing crystal meth and possessing heroin. A further 4.5 years was added to his sentence - meaning he's not eligible for release until 2018 - for smuggling drugs into prison.

It Runs In The Family (2003) Review


Good
Someone once said of nepotism, "It does a family good." And occasionally, it does a movie good, as well. It Runs in the Family might not have worked so well with, say, Martin and Charlie Sheen, or Tom and Colin Hanks. But with three generations of Douglas actors on hand, the sentimental yet familiar family affair coasts along smoothly and generates enough heat to warm the heart.

The Grombergs are typical urban dwellers who confront extramatal temptations, medical dilemmas and general household turmoil on a daily basis. Alex (Michael Douglas) and his wife, Rebecca (Bernadette Peters), hardly have time for each other, let alone for their two children (Cameron Douglas, Rory Culkin) and Alex's parents (Kirk and Diana Douglas). Though largely independent, the group learns to lean on each other to pull through a sees of emotional challenges.
