Redmond O'Neal Arrested For Heroin Possession

Redmond O’Neal, the son of actor Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett, was arrested in Santa Monica on Tuesday for drug charges.

The drama never ceases with this family. In 2008, Ryan and Redmond were arrested together for suspicion of crystal meth possession. In 2007, Ryan was arrested after a fight with another son.

Police saw Redmond run a red light and then pulled him over. They then inspected his automobile and found heroin in the vehicle. He is currently being held with no bail, according to law enforcement.

"At approximately 8.45 am a motor officer observed an argument at a store on Lincoln corner of Michigan," a police spokesperson told

“O'Neal was one of those involved in the argument. The officer then watched as he got into his vehicle. He proceeded to go north bound on Lincoln before turning west bound on Olympic, it was at this time the officer observed him going through the red turn arrow. A search of his vehicle was done and narcotics were recovered."

Redmond recently graduated from a court-ordered treatment program he had to attend for drug-related offenses. O’Neal claimed he was clean last year but was battling his addictions during his mother’s death.
