My Nephew Got Arrested This Weekend

My teenage nephew got arrested this weekend for partying with some friends at a vacant house and he had some drugs (pot, prescription drugs, though nothing hard) in his possession. My brother and sister-in-law are upset, but mostly annoyed at the heavy handed tactics of the cops. My nephew seems strangely unfased by the whole thing and his parents seem to admire his "hang tough" demeanor. I don't think he has to break down and cry, but he could at least be a bit contrite about the money thing whole thing will cost. I know there are many threads about various people complaining about the antics of nieces, nephews and the younger generation in general, but I am truly baffled at my brother's nonchalant reaction to all this. I'm sure in the end the whole thing will be adjudicated, but that's after 2-3K in legal costs, plus counseling and drug tests. Even on a good day, my nephew sleeps all day, seems to have no outside interests and spends every waking moment glued to his phone. My brother & I were raised in such a different environment, I can't believe he turns a blind eye to all of this, even if the can afford it. I just try to be supportive, but generally keep my mouth shut and stay out of it, but I'd love to tell them that there "smart kid" (he is book smart) is a lazy, spoiled brat and this incident is just the beginning...
