Redmond O’Neal Arrested for Drugs While on Leave From Rehab


The year is already shaping up to be a bad one for Redmond O’Neal, who was taken into custody on drug charges while on a 24-hour leave from rehab.

Police arrested O’Neal — son of actor Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett — on Dec. 29 and he faces up to 6-years in prison for violating the terms of his probation, reports.

The staff of Impact, the treatment facility the 24-year-old was at, noticed O’Neal’s condition when he returned from his leave.

The 24-year-old had been sent to rehab because of his previous drug arrests.

Redmond O’Neal sentenced to residential rehab

Redmond O'Neal

Five months after his arrest for bringing heroin into a jail facility, Redmond O’Neal pleaded no contest Friday in a Santa Clarita, Calif., courtroom and was sentenced to a minimum of one year in a residential drug treatment program.

O’Neal, 24, son of Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett, is expected to be moved from the Pitchess Detention Center – where he was already serving time for violating his probation on drug charges – to the Impact Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center in Pasadena, Calif.

The plea was an expected component of his participation in Los Angeles County’s drug court. But the sentence carries stiff penalties for O’Neal if he slips up again. Superior Court Judge Graciela Freixes ordered three years of formal probation and a six-year suspended state prison sentence, meaning if O’Neal violates his probation in any way, he could go to prison for up to six years.

On April 5, O’Neal and a friend were visiting the Pitchess facility when sheriff’s deputies searched his car and found heroin. O’Neal admitted at the time that the drugs were his, and on Friday he pleaded no contest to possession of an illegal substance in a jail facility and admitted the allegation that he committed the offense while he was out on bail.

Redmond O’Neal gets his own reality show!


Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal’s troubled son, Redmond, will turn his struggles with addiction into a new reality show, In Touch has learned exclusively.

“Redmond has signed the deal that was brokered for him by his dad,” says a friend. “Ryan will be on the show, too.”

Filming will start in four months, when Redmond, 24, is set to be released from a California detention center, where he is undergoing intense treatment to kick his drug habit.

“Redmond wants to do this to honor his mother. He really wants to get better to honor her memory,” says the pal, adding that Redmond will only receive his inheritance if he is sober.

On the show, which has yet to be sold to a network, “Redmond will be followed by a trainer and a bodyguard who will try to help him get a job and have a real life,” the pal says.
