DOUGLAS' SON ARRESTED FOR HIGH OBNOXIOUSNESS

Kirk Douglas' youngest son got hauled into court because he wouldn't behave on an American Airlines flight.

Eric Douglas, 36, became combative, "loud and obnoxious" after refusing to place his dog in a pet carrier in violation of federal regulations, according to an FBI affidavit.Then he grabbed a flight attendant's buttocks, the affidavit said.

FBI agents arrested Douglas in Los Angeles after the flight from New York landed Sunday night. The complaint alleged he interfered with the duties of flight attendants and assaulted a flight attendant.

He was released on $25,000 bail Monday and scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 21.
