(Newser) – More than a decade after Robert Downey Jr. successfully turned his life around, his son has been arrested on drug charges. Indio Downey was stopped after police saw him allegedly smoking a pipe in a car in West Hollywood yesterday, Radar reports. He was a passenger in the car, according to TMZ, but during a search cops allegedly found cocaine in his possession. Two other people in the car were not arrested, the AP reports. Last year, Indio, now 20, went to rehab for an addiction to pain pills. (A source says RDJ is "heartbroken" over his son's drug problems.)

Totally out of the blue, what are the odds? I mean who knew?

Addiction is hereditary. Hopefully his dad's success conquering it won't be something that enables him to say "I'll be fine, look at my dad" but think about all the horrible stuff he dealt with trying to recover (and not trying.)
