Will DeGray, heir to a Wrigley’s Spearmint fortune, was arrested in connection with a domestic violence incident in Palm Beach Shores Sunday (PBSO)

flag-exclusiveThe son of Wrigley chewing gum fortune-keeper Helen Rosburg is out of jail on $10,000-bond today after a weekend arrest by Palm Beach Shores police.

And the arrest in an ugly domestic violence incident Sunday — in which he allegedly head-butted his girlfriend and beat her about the head — caps a long history of trouble with the law for 26-year-old Will DeGray.

Palm Beach horse breeder Rosburg is the great granddaughter of William Wrigley Jr., founder of the gum empire and once an owner of Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs.

Translation: She’s mega-loaded, and her son DeGray will be, too.

For now, he’s only saddled with a giant drug problem, according to public records.

At one point in 2010, he was declared indigent after an arrest on charges of illegal possession of oxycodone and Xanax.

DeGray was then represented by an assistant public defender, courtesy of Mr. Taxpayer!

DeGray couldn’t be contacted about his latest skirmish with the law, which started when his girlfriend threatened to leave when she found him drunk — despite the fact that he is in court-mandated drug-and-alcohol treatment program.

“Go @^&* yourself,” the galpal said when reached by Gossip Extra.

His socialite mom, by the way, isn’t commenting either.

She currently is a young adult novel writer, and runs the publishing house Medallion Press.

Police tell me the arrest came on the day after DeGray moved to a new condo complex, and he’s already been evicted!

Since 2005, DeGray has been arrested at least 10 times in Palm Beach County on charges varying from possession of addictive pain pills, cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, driving on a revoked license and violation of probation.
