Redmond O’Neal was arrested Sunday on suspicion of drug possession at Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic.
O’Neal, the son of actors Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal, has a history of drug problems and is on probation for a previous drug conviction in July 2008. He and his father were arrested in September for drug possession when authorities did a routine probation check of the family’s Malibu home.
According to Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore, deputies performing security checks of cars in the parking lot at Pitchess, which is considered within jail property, found the drugs in O’Neal’s possession.
He was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley station, where he remains in custody, in lieu of $25,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Santa Clarita Superior Court tomorrow.
