Redmond O' Neal has been charged with two felonies, drug and gun possession.
Redmond O'Neal has been charged with two felonies, including gun possession.
The 26-year-old son of 'Love Story' actor Ryan O' Neal and the late actress Farrah Fawcett was stopped by police officers after he ran a red light in Santa Monica, California on Tuesday (02.08.11) and a search of the vehicle allegedly revealed narcotics and a weapon.
The criminal complaint filed against Redmond by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office today (04.08.11) states: "A Felony, was committed by Redmond James O' Neal, who did unlawfully own, possess, purchase, receive, and have custody and control of a firearm, to wit, handgun, the said defendant having theretofore been duly and legally convicted of a felony or felonies."
He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance, heroin and according to RadarOnline, Redmond -who is being held without bail - is expected to be arraigned this afternoon at the LAX Airport Courthouse.
His attorney Richard Pintalis is expected to ask Judge Keith Schwartz to release the defendant on bail to rehab.
This is the latest in a long line of problems for Redmond. He spent time in rehab in 2010 and remains on probation for a 2009 incident in which he brought narcotics onto the grounds of a jail facility.
