It was a different role for the imprisoned Cameron Douglas: the prosecution's star witness in a drug-conspiracy trail of an accused dealer.
The scene was Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday, as the troubled son of Michael Douglas and grandson of Kirk Douglas identified defendant David Escalera as the dealer who in clandestine meetings at gas stations, restaurants supplied Cameron, 32, with cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin, reports New York's Daily News.
Scruffy- looking in court, where he testified for four hours, Cameron, who is currently serving a five-year sentence for dealing methamphetamine, sported blue prison-issued pants and matching smock over a black T-shirt. He mumbled, shook on the stand and told stories of his own drug-dealing past.
