The son of Michael Douglas failed a drug test earlier this month in prison.

Cameron Douglas, who is currently serving a 9½-year prison sentence for drug-related charges, was allegedly found with "drugs in his system" earlier this month, according to the New York Post.

Quoting a "prison insider," the paper reported the 34-year-old, who is in a federal prison in Pennsylvania, "failed a urinalysis" in the first week of January and was "immediately sent to solitary confinement." It is unclear as to whether Douglas will get more jail time.

RadarOnline said Douglas was sentenced to five years in prison for both possessing and selling drugs, including methamphetamine and heroin, in 2010. He was later given more jail time after he pleaded guilty to smuggling drugs into prison. He is not eligible for parole until 2018.

It's safe to say Douglas isn't enjoying his confinement. In December, The Huffington Post reported Douglas was assaulted, having a leg and finger broken, after a New York crime boss reportedly put a $100 bounty on his head for naming other suspects to authorities.

Cameron's father has been supportive. RadarOnline reported that the actor has regularly visited his son in prison, even as the elder Douglas he battled cancer. According to the New York Daily News, the Oscar-winner appeared in a Manhattan court in December, seeking to cut time off his prison sentence.
