The son of actor
Indio Falconer Downey, 20, was in the passenger seat of a car driving near Santa Monica and La Cienega boulevards about 2 p.m. when a sheriff's deputy saw him "apparently using the pipe," said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Dave Valentine.
The deputy stopped the car and, after a brief investigation, arrested Downey on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. The driver and a third person in the car were allowed to leave the scene, Valentine said.
Downey was booked into Los Angeles County jail Sunday afternoon and posted $10,250 bail a few hours later. He was released from custody about 12:20 a.m. Monday.
Downey's father has his own history of drug-related arrests.
