To quote Jimmy Cagney “You dirty rat.”
The drug-addict son of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas has suffered severe injuries, including a broken leg and fingers, after being attacked in prison.
Cameron Douglas, 34, who is doing time for years of drug use and dealing, was apparently attacked after an unnamed New York crime boss put a $100 bounty on his head for being a ‘rat.’
During a 2010 bail hearing, Cameron’s psychiatrist inadvertently revealed that his client had snitched to the police about his drug suppliers, David and Eduardo Escalera, during his original sentencing hearing.
Cameron’s testimony against the dealers helped get him a five-year, rather than 10-year, sentence. But last year he was sentenced to an additional four and a half years for smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Pennsylvania.
