NEW YORK (AP) It can't be easy being the son of a fabulously rich and famous father, who, was in turn, the son of a fabulously famous Hollywood scion.

At least that's how it appears for the son of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas, who has been arrested on a drug charge at an upscale New York City hotel, according to law enforcement officials.

Two people familiar with the investigation say 30-year-old Cameron Douglas was arrested July 28 on a methamphetamine-dealing charge at the Hotel Gansevoort in Manhattan. They spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Cameron Douglas has acted in movies including 2003's "It Runs in the Family," starring his father and grandfather Kirk Douglas.

He also was arrested in California in 2007 on cocaine possession charges. His attorney then said the arresting officer didn't do his job properly.

There's no telephone listing for him. It's unclear whether he has a new attorney.

Michael Douglas' publicist and agent haven't returned calls.
