Michael Douglas’ son, Cameron, attack in prison, suffers broken leg and finger

Prison life has been rough for Cameron Douglas, Michael Douglas’ son, who was beaten in prison after a New York mob boss out a bounty on his head.

Cameron Douglas busted on drug chargesCameron Douglas, age 34, suffered a broken leg and finger after the mobster offered $100 to anyone who would “hurt the rat.”

The New York Post reported Sunday that Douglas said he was injured during a handball match. Douglas allegedly dropped out of the prison’s flag-football league after he learned that the mob boss had offered payment to anyone who injured him during the game.

“He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted,” a prison source tells the Post. “He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don’t break a femur playing handball.”

Douglas was labeled a “rat” after it was revealed by his therapist in 2010 that he had agreed to testify against his drug suppliers, David and Eduardo Escalera, for a lesser prison sentence.

He ended up only getting five years in prison instead of 10 when he was sentenced in 2009, but later got smacked with an additional four and a half years for smuggling heroin and a prescription narcotic into the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

He isn’t up to be released until 2018.

“He recently had his initials inscribed on his neck and big stars on his shoulders, with each year of his incarceration in each star: ’10, ’11, ’12. And he’s currently getting a scroll on his back. They are being done by his best prison pal, Billy Trent, and he’s paid over $1,000 so far for all the ink.”
