Just when it looked like the late Farrah Fawcett’s son, Redmond O’Neal, was keeping his promise to his mother and cleaning up his life, he finds himself in the back of a patrol car once again.
After running a red light in Santa Monica at 8:30am on Tuesday, 26-year-old Redmond, who is currently on probation for drug related charges, was pulled over by police. After a search was made of his car, authorities allegedly found heroin and weed.
Redmond O’Neal was booked for the red light traffic infraction, violating his felony drug probation, as well as possession of a controlled substance. He is being held without bail until his court appearance.
UPDATE: Redmond O’Neal has been charged with heroin possession as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm. [source]
There are two ways this can end. And one of them ain’t much fun.
