Robert Downey Jr.'s 20-year-old son Indio was arrested for cocaine possession in West Hollywood over the weekend. Seeing as his dad has had a very public battle with both cocaine and heroin over the years, this is pretty bad news!
Indio Downey was riding in the passenger seat of a car around 2pm on Sunday when cops drove up next to the vehicle and noticed the passenger was smoking something out of a pipe, according to TMZ. A Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy pulled over the car, did a search and allegedly found cocaine in Indio's possession. Indio was arrested, taken to jail and charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, though it's not known how much of the drug he had on him.
Robert Downey Jr. said in a statement on Monday:
"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. We're grateful to the Sheriff's department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale."
Indio posted $10,000 bail and was released after midnight on Sunday.
The last time we saw Iron Man was in 2012's The Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow are back as Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in the new trailer for Iron Man 3!
Stark prepares to battle it out against the Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley), and as always, the flick promises plenty of explosions and gunfire.
The Avengers sequel won't hit theaters until 2015, but around the time Iron Man 3 is released, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will begin shooting, so we'll be getting our fix of our fav Marvel comic characters until the whole crew is reunited to duke it out against Thanos.
Robert Downey Jr. is reprising his role as Tony Stark in Iron Man 3 ... the third installment of the hit franchise.
The action flick also stars Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Sir Ben Kingsley as the villain.
Disney released the following synopsis:
"When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him."
The full-length trailer won't be available until tomorrow, but thankfully Marvel Studios released a short teaser for Iron Man 3 over the weekend!
Robert Downey Jr. is back as Tony Stark, and this is our first look at his arch nemesis Mandarin, who is played by Sir Ben Kingsley. Of course, Gwyneth Paltrow reprises her role as Pepper Potts, and we're thinking we'll get a peek at the Hulk as well.
Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3, 2013 and be sure to check back Tuesday for the complete theatrical trailer!
Robert Downey Jr. is probably the only straight guy who can pull off a jacket this sparkly, while Chris Hemsworth can make any ensemble look hot!
The stars came out for the NYC premiere of The Avengers on Saturday afternoon, which was also the closing film at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival this year.
The upcoming action flick retinues the best of the Marvel Comic heroes, and while the film wont be released until next week, festival organizers gave tickets to real-world heroes at this weekend's premier, including "members of the police department, firefighters, U.S. military, and first responders,” according to the film's press release.
