Cameron Douglas, son of legendary Hollywood actor Michael Douglas, was recently attacked in prison by fellow inmates, suffering a broken leg and fingers. Douglas was targeted for violence after a mob boss put a bounty on the Oscar winner’s son for “ratting” on his drug dealers.
“He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted,” a source told the New York Post.
Douglas did not make the mistake of “ratting” a second time.
“He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don’t break a femur playing handball,” the source said.
Douglas, 34, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2010 for heroin possession and for running a coke and meth-dealing operation out of a New York City hotel room. Last December, Douglas’ sentence was extended another four and a half years when he was caught smuggling heroin into his Pennsylvania prison.
