As far as upstanding Republican dynasties go, Cameron Reagan is failing miserably. The 31-year-old grandson of one Ronald Reagan may be headed for the clink after a Malibu judge issued a warrant for his arrest on a marijuana possession charge. Seems Cameron was pulled over for speeding in November, and cops found pot in his car—he then proceeded to blow off his Jan. 8 hearing, reports TMZ.

Perhaps that's because Reagan was charged Jan. 7 with resisting arrest after he went ballistic on cops responding to his parents' house after someone hit the panic button. Reagan, the son of radio host Michael Reagan, is getting to be an old hand with the court system: He also spent six months in jail a decade ago on burglary charges.
