Things are going from bad to worse for this guy. His last narcotics arrest was widely reported following his mother’s death as the case of a grieving son whose past drug problems came back to haunt him. This time, though, he was pinched while in the midst of a rehab stint.

Sources state that rehab was actually working and that Redmond had stayed clean for nearly half a year. But Radar Online reports that he slipped and was taken in on December 29 for another felony drug charge. Sadly, the new charges will violate the terms of probation for his last infamous bust.

He will now spend the next month in jail awaiting a sentencing hearing on February 2nd for the probation violation. In court on Tuesday, Judge Tynan let his disappointment in O’Neal be known, saying:

“It seems to me you haven’t got a clue as to what recovery means…It’s a lifetime commitment. It’s grinding, hard, painful work.”

Observers have expressed sympathy after hearing that Redmond O’Neal was arrested last week. Others have pointed to his multiple other arrests as a sign that he doesn’t desire to stay clean. In an attempt to explain his relapse, he wrote a letter to the court prior to the Tuesday’s hearing. In the letter, he spoke of the difficulty of losing his mother, and the feeling that he had let his family down.

It will be interesting to see what will come of Redmond. Is jail time really what an addict needs? Or should they put him back into another mandatory in-patient facility? Give us your thoughts below.

Check out some photos and video of Redmond O’Neal, arrested again.
