Farah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal’s son, Redmond, was taken into custody under suspicion of drug possession and probation violation after a cop claimed to have found heroin in his car.
O’Neal, 26, ran a red light and Santa Monica early on Tuesday and was pulled over by a police officer. A routine search of his car led to the discovery of heroin.
At the time of this writing, O’Neal was arrested without possibility of bail, pending a court appearance.
The troubled Hollywood offspring has been battling drug addiction right from his teens. He has been in and out of rehab and jail on several occasions for crimes stemming from substance abuse.
He was even in jail when Fawcett passed away in 2009. He was released temporarily so that he could be present at her funeral.
