Al Gore's Son Busted for Drugs
Al Gore III, the son of Al and Tipper Gore, was busted in L.A. today for driving 100 miles per hour and drug possession.
He was taken into custody at 2:15 a.m. following a traffic stop:
A subsequent search yielded a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. There were no prescriptions found, he said.
Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and booked into the Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana, about 34 miles south of Los Angeles, on $20,000 bail, he said.
Gore is not a first-time arrestee:
He was arrested in 2003 for marijuana possession and in 2002 for suspected drunken-driving.
He got pre-trial diversion back then, so he has no prior convictions.
He was put in a communal holding cell. The police say he's being treated the same as anyone else.
I hope he doesn't get the same "equal treatment" Paris Hilton got.
