Redmond O’Neal Arrested For Drugs…AGAIN

August 2, 2011

Redmond O’Neal, the troubled son of Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett, was arrested yet again this morning in relation to drug charges. Police saw the 26-year-old run a red light and he was pulled over. They took a look-see in his vehicle and found heroin.

According to Radar Online, Redmond was involved in some sort of disagreement at a store in Santa Monica where police saw the whole thing go down. A police spokesperson told Radar that this is what happened next:

“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. The officer stopped him for the traffic violation. A search of his vehicle was done and narcotics were recovered.”

O’Neal is currently being held without bail. He is being charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana in a vehicle and probation violation.

O’Neal has had a long string of run-ins with the law. In 2009 he was arrested for possession of heroin while already on probation stemming from a previous DUI and meth possession charges. Rather than head to the slammer for four years, he went to rehab. When his mother Farrah died in June 2009, he was allowed to attend her funeral.

When he was granted a 24 hour leave in December 2009, he came back to the rehab facility under the influence and charged yet again. At the time of his arrest this morning, he had just under a year left of his probation.

It really is such a shame. He obviously can’t get past these demons. If he ever ends up getting out of the slammer, sadly we will probably end up reading that he has overdosed. What do you think?

    Hundreds of thousands of children of average Americans are experiencing this same struggle. Why don’t we just let him struggle, fail or succeed without putting his name in the paper for his every unsuccessful attempt. We have more things we need to focus on then this lost soul.
