It seems that Cameron Douglas isn’t getting any better in prison. The 34-year-old son of Michael Douglas was recently sent to solitary confinement after he was found with drugs in his system earlier this month. The New York Post reports a prison insider said he “failed a urinalysis” in the first week of January.
Cameron is currently serving a nine-and-a-half year prison sentence at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. In 2010 he was sentenced to five years for both possessing and selling drugs. Then he was slapped a longer sentence late last year for smuggling drugs in the jail.
He has reportedly been beefing up physically and getting prison tattoos. An insider revealed, “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.”
Dad Michael is doing all he can to help his son. He appeared in a Manhattan court in December on behalf of his son to ask for his prison sentence to be cut. Cameron is not eligible to be released until 2018.
