Robert Downey Jr's son will enter a drug diversion programme to resolve a cocaine possession court case filed after he was arrested earlier this year.

Indio Downey pleaded guilty to cocaine possession and was ordered to enter a diversion scheme that will result in his case being dismissed if he successfully completes it.

The 21-year-old sat next to his father until his case was called.

Indio Downey's lawyer Blair Berk said her client will spend 90 days in a residential drug treatment programme. She said he has already completed 70 days.

He was arrested in June in West Hollywood. His father thanked authorities for arresting his son and pledged to get him the help he needs.

The father and son appeared together in the 2005 movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
