Cameron Douglas was careful to use aliases, code words, rented mailboxes and disposable phones, but in the end the son of Oscar winner Michael Douglas was done in by former friends and associates to help save their own skin.
A 10-page complaint written and filed by the New York State Drug Enforcement Agency was unsealed against Douglas – who was arrested earlier this week on methamphetamine charges – and painted a portrait of the 31-year-old as a drug dealer who over the last three years sold a huge amount of crystal meth, often out of posh hotels in New York and Los Angeles using FedEx to move money and drugs across the country.
Douglas, a sometimes actor and producer who worked as a deejay in clubs in New York and L.A., would use his one-time assistant to make introductions to potential buyers of large amounts of methamphetamine, the complaint said.
