O'neal's Case Referred To District Attorney

LATEST: RYAN O'NEAL's arrest report has been forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office who will decide whether or not to file charges against the star. O'Neal was arrested Saturday night (03FEB07) and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and negligent discharge of a firearm after a fight with his 42-year-old son GRIFFIN. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has concluded their investigation and referred the case to the DA's office yesterday afternoon (07FEB07). O'Neal's attorney, MARK WERKSMAN, claims his client was acting in self-defence and says Griffin consumed alcohol just before the scuffle, "which could have contributed to his violent outburst." He says O'Neal was returning from a dinner celebrating FARRAH FAWCETT's 60th birthday and found his son at his home and asked him to leave. Werksman insists Griffin was the aggressor and his client "got the worst of it" saying Ryan was "thrown to the ground and beaten". The attorney is confident his client's name will be cleared in the incident, adding, "Ryan will be completely vindicated and exonerated." Meanwhile, Griffin O'Neal and his pregnant girlfriend JOANNA BERRY have hired top attorney GLORIA ALLRED, who claims they may be called to testify against Ryan O'Neal in a criminal case if charges are filed.
