JAMES BOND star Pierce Brosnan's son CHRISTOPHER has allegedly been arrested in suspicion of possessing the drug heroin.

The 32-year-old was searched and arrested last Wednesday (15JUN05) in London after police spotted him leaving the house of a suspect drug supplier.

Christopher - who has worked as an assistant producer on several Bond movies - has battled with drink and drug addictions for years and nearly died in 2002 after overdosing on Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB).

A police spokeswoman confirms, "A 32-year-old man was arrested in Brixton Road on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug, believed to be heroin.

"He was taken to a police station and bailed to return in August."

The news will bring fresh worries for 52-year-old actor Brosnan who adopted Christopher when he married his first wife Cassandra Harris.
