Police say the man was found unconcious on the living room floor. ....Officially the cause of death has not been released, however sources are telling Eyewitness News that it may have been an overdose. The medical examiner will be performing an autopsy.....Eric Douglas had battled drug and alcohol problems for years. Though not as famous as his father or half-brother Michael, Eric Douglas made his share of headlines -- unfortunately, they almost exclusively involved arrests.
