Celebrities aren’t the only ones getting arrested constantly. Their kids run into the law sometimes, too! This weekend brought two arrests for two really awful reasons: Robert Downey, Jr and Ice-T‘s son and grandson, respectively, got locked up.
Robert Downey Jr’s son Indio Downey, 20, was arrested for possession of cocaine on Sunday. Officers spotted him smoking from a pipe while riding in a car. He was charged with possession and paraphernalia. He posted bail and was released later that night. Father Robert has already released a statement. “Unfortunately there’s a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ice-T’s grandson Elyjah Marrow, 19, was arrested when he accidentally shot and killed his roommate last week. He had reportedly been playing with the gun when it discharged. Elyjah was charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless conduct, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, and possession of a stolen firearm. Ice-T has yet to comment.
