NY mobster placed bounty on Michael Douglas's son for being a rat

Prison justice — it’s a bitch.
The jailed, heroin-addict son of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas suffered a broken leg and finger behind bars after a crime-family captain put a $100 bounty on him for being a “rat,” a prison insider says.
The source says that Cameron Douglas, 34, mysteriously suffered the injuries after a New York City mobster offered payment to anyone who hurt the drug-dealing scion during flag-football season this fall at Loretto, Pa.
Douglas got wind of the scheme and dropped out of the league, which ended in October, but soon after turned up in the sick bay looking like he’d been mauled by the Giants defensive line.
IT GETS WORSE: Cameron Douglas (left with dad Michael Douglas) has suffered severe injuries in prison.

“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.”
Douglas, who is doing a nearly 10-year stretch for dealing crystal meth and smuggling in drugs for himself while in the pokey, was inadvertently exposed as a turncoat by his shrink during a bail hearing in 2010.
Dr. Robert Millman let slip that Douglas agreed to testify against his suppliers, Mexican immigrant brothers David and Eduardo Escalera.
The prison tipster says a doctor’s aide misdiagnosed the broken leg and a blood clot developed.
“She thought it was a sprain, so he wants to sue this woman. He’s still walking around on crutches two months later.”
His famous father and his mom, Diandra Douglas, have visited Cameron but not together. Michael Douglas was furious over the allegedly botched medical treatment for his son, said the source.
No one has been punished for Douglas’ injuries, but most prisoners assume they resulted from the alleged bounty, the source says.
The gangster allegedly involved “is the self-proclaimed ‘King of the Italians.’ They won’t tolerate rats, and Cameron testified against the people who gave him the drugs.”
The insider says that the pampered, baby-faced Douglas has “gone gangster” in the joint, reshaping himself by pumping iron and getting prison tattoos.
“He recently had his initials inscribed on his neck and big stars on his shoulders, with each year of his incarceration in each star: ’10, ’11, ’12. And he’s currently getting a scroll on his back. They are being done by his best prison pal, Billy Trent, and he’s paid over $1,000 so far for all the ink.”
Cameron, who turned rat and got five years instead of 10 in 2009 — only to get an extra 4 1/2 years for smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center — has been working as a weekend orderly in a housing unit and earning $1.65 per month.
He is not eligible to be released until 2018.
