Al Gore III was arrested on drug charges early this morning after being pulled over for doing 100 mph on a California freeway. An Orange County deputy allegedly smelled marijuana, CBS 2 in LA reports, and a search turned up an ounce of pot as well as Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, and Adderall. The ex-VP's son was held on $20,000 bail.
"He did not have a prescription for any of these dangerous drugs," a sheriff's department spokesman told the Orange County Register.
