Cameron Douglas, doing hard time for his years of drug use and distribution, was attacked in prison and had his leg and a finger broken, The New York Post is reporting.

Cameron, 34, became the target of a New York mobster who put a mere $100 bounty on Michael's famous son, a source told The Post. It was payback for the fact that Cameron had ratted out his drug suppliers during his original sentencing hearing, information that was inadvertently revealed during a 2010 bail hearing.

As previously reported, Cameron's testimony against the dealers helped get him a five year, instead of 10 year, sentence in 2009.  But he later earned himself an additional four and a half years behind bars for smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

Michael Douglas has remained dedicated to trying to help his troubled son. Even when the actor was battling cancer two years ago, he regularly made the 200 mile trip to visit Cameron at his Pennsylvania prison.
