Apple doesn't fall far from the Downey Jr. tree
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles authorities say the 20-year-old son of actor Robert Downey, Jr. is out on bail after being arrested with what deputies believe was cocaine.
Sheriff's Sgt. Dave Valentine says Indio Falconer Downey was taken into custody Sunday afternoon after a car he was in was pulled over in West Hollywood.
Valentine says Downey was booked on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, believed to be cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Two other people were in the car, but only Downey was arrested.
Downey was released shortly after 9 p.m. on $10,250 bail.
Bynes' bong-tossing blunder is tossed
NEW YORK (AP) -- A judge has dismissed actress Amanda Bynes' New York City bong-tossing case.
The judge had previously said the charges would be dismissed if Bynes stayed out of trouble for six months and went to counseling twice a week. Attorney Gerald Shargel submitted an affidavit saying Bynes had complied with the court's requirements.
Bynes was charged last year with reckless endangerment and marijuana possession. Building managers called police because they said she was smoking pot in the lobby of her Manhattan apartment. When officers entered her 36th-floor apartment, they said they saw her heave a bong out the window.
A&E filming new show on Connecticut island
BRANFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A new reality show is being filmed on one of Connecticut's tiny Thimble Islands.
WNPR radio reports A&E is filming a show called "Love Prison" on Beldon Island, one of 300 small islands off the coast of Branford.
Beldon Island has just one house on just over an acre of land in Long Island Sound.
Producers of the show say that house will be home to social experiment involving couples who have an online relationship, but have never before met in person. They will spend a week together on the island.
The network says 10 episodes of the show are set to air beginning in August.
The island is listed for sale, with an asking price of just under $4 million.
Monty Python shows aim for Jagger-like energy
LONDON (AP) -- The members of Monty Python are aiming to move like Jagger in their live farewell shows.
The fast-paced comic revue requires the septuagenarian comedians to act, sing, dance and pull off rapid-fire costume changes.
Michael Palin says they've drawn inspiration from the Rolling Stones frontman, still gyrating at 70.
Palin told a news conference Monday that the group members had to show "we can still move fast. A kind of madness takes over. You just leap about at a certain point."
