LOS ANGELES (CNN) - Al Gore III, the son of the former vice president, is undergoing treatment after his arrest on drug charges in Los Angeles, a spokesman for his father told CNN Thursday.
Gore, 24, was arrested in Los Angeles early Wednesday after he was stopped for speeding and police found a small amount of marijuana, as well as several prescription drugs, in his Toyota Prius.
In an appearance on NBC's "Today Show" Thursday, former Vice President Al Gore said the family is dealing with the incident "as a private family matter."
"We love him very much," the elder Gore said.
