North Dakota fans of Robert Downey Jr. may be dismayed by his son's recent encounter with the law in West Hollywood. The car in which the 20-year-old was riding was pulled over on June 29, resulting in his being taken into custody. Two additional occupants were in the vehicle. However, they were not detained. The actor's son is facing drug possession charges for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police believed the controlled substance to be cocaine.
A North Dakota woman entered a plea of not guilty on numerous charges related to alleged possession and use of methamphetamine in Northeast Judicial District Court on June 4. On the same day, a North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation special agent offered testimony at a preliminary probable cause hearing.
