Michael Douglas' son beaten: Cameron Douglas attacked in prison, suffered broken femur

Cameron Douglas, 34, the son of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas , has suffered multiple injuries in prison, a source tells the New York Post .

The source says that Douglas, who is serving nearly a 10-year sentence for dealing crystal meth and smuggling drugs into jail, was mysteriously injured after a New York mobster offered a bounty to anyone who hurt him.

"He broke his femur, which is hard to snap, and had to have a rod inserted," says the source. "He told health services staff that he hurt them playing handball. You don't break a femur playing handball."

The New York Post reports that Douglas was inadvertently "exposed as a turncoat" by his doctor during a bail hearing in 2010. Dr. Robert Millman revealed that Douglas agreed to testify against his suppliers, Mexican immigrant brothers David and Eduardo Escalera.

The source claims that Douglas has "gone gangster" in prison, reshaping his body by pumping iron and getting prison tattoos.

Cameron, who agreed to testify in exchange for five years off of his would-be ten-year sentence, added another 4 1/2 years when he was caught smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

He will not be eligible to be released until 2018.
