Robert Downey Jr. speaks out on son’s arrest

Robert Downey Jr. is speaking out in the arrest of his son Indio (mom is actress Deborah Falconer). “Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it,” the Iron Man star said in a statement. The 20-year-old got taken in for cocaine possession in Hollywood Sunday, TMZ reports. The sometime actor (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) was released after posting $10,000 bail. The actor thanked authorities and said the family was determined to get him the help he needs.
