What makes it worse is that he did it in front of his own son! Sad!
Casey Royer, best known as the former drummer for Social Distortion, was arrested for allegedly OD'd on heroin. Police responded to a 911 call last week from Casey's 12-year-old son, who ran from his house to a neighbors after his father overdosed while watching TV.
When the police arrived to Casey's home, they found to place covered in garbage, drugs and drug paraphernalia, including needles. He was rushed to hospital, but as soon as he was strong enough, he was promptly arrested. Today, he was officially charged with one count of child endangerment, and one count of being under the influence of heroin.
No word yet on where is son will go from here, poor dear. Hopefully, he has some clean, loving family members who will take care of him, since his father is clearly completely unfit to do so.
