Cameron Douglas is on trial

Cameron Douglas, famous actor's son, has been ordered to stand trial on cocaine possession charges.

At a pretrial hearing Thursday, Superior Court Judge Joseph Lodge upheld charges of felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of a hypodermic needle filed against Cameron Morrell Douglas, 28, and a companion, Christopher Lane, 30.

Lodge added a charge of being under the influence of a controlled substance for Douglas, based on the testimony of a Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputy.

Both men are scheduled for arraignment Nov. 16.

Deputy James McKarrell, the only witness at the hearing, testified that on July 22, he and another deputy came across Douglas and Lane in a car near a Carpinteria motel and found a syringe on the floorboard with liquid cocaine in it.

The deputy testified that Lane claimed ownership of the syringe, and both men were arrested.

Douglas' attorney, Juan Huerta, said McKarrell failed to do his job by not testing the two men for sobriety.

Cameron Douglas appeared alongside his father and grandfather Kirk Douglas in the 2003 film "It Runs in the Family."
