(Newser) – The troubles continue for Michael Douglas' son Cameron: He's currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for drug dealing, yet even while on the inside he was busted for doing drugs. He failed a urinalysis earlier this month and was sent to solitary confinement, a source tells the New York Post. It was the second setback this month, after Douglas was earlier injured—possibly as a result of "prison justice" after being labeled a rat. Last year, Douglas' original sentence was doubled after he admitted to having drugs smuggled in. No word on whether his sentence will be increased once again.

...and the news media wouldn't even care about this guy (whom I've never heard of before) except for the fact that he has a celebrity dad. Well, he screwed up his life. Have a fun time in prison while the rest of us who don't do drugs are out here enjoying our freedom. Good bye.

Cameron Douglas doing time and his prison problems is not news to me; just let me know when they throw his dad in the slammer and we may have something there.
