Al Gore's son busted for pot and pills
Vice President Al Gore's son, Al Gore III, was arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of marijuana and prescription drug possession after cops pulled him over for speeding on the 4th of July.
The younger Gore was driving about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over at about 2:15 a.m., according to Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino.
The cops say they smelled weed and searched the hybrid car. They evidently found less than an ounce of marijuana along with an array of pills including Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall.
"He does not have a prescription for any of those drugs," Amormino said.
Gore was held in the men's central jail in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail.
