The son of the late Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal, Redmond O’Neal, has been arrested and is back in jail after violating probation. Read more on Redmond O’Neal’s arrest below.
Redmond O’Neal was arrested on December 29th after he returned to the Impact Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center in Pasadena after his 24 hour pass. This was the first time Redmond had been given a pass from the facility since his he arrived at the rehab center in September.
“When he came back, he told the program counselors that he had used drugs,” L.A. County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said. “He tested positive” for unspecified drugs.
Redmond was arrested for a probation violation, a felony charge, and sent to the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles. Redmond remains in jail without bail.
At his hearing today, the judge ordered O’Neal to remain jailed pending a February 2nd hearing. Back in November the same judge, Judge Tynan, warned Redmondl that he would go to state prison for six years if he violated his probation.
“It actually strikes me that you haven’t got a clue as to what recovery means. It is a lifelong commitment and it’s grinding, hard, painful work,” Tynan said after reading a letter Tuesday from O’Neal that was sealed from the public.
“You’ve got one responsibility and that’s to yourself — to get clean and sober,” the judge told Redmond.
O’Neal’s mother Farrah Fawcett died June 25 after a long battle with cancer. Redmond temporarily released from jail so he could attend her funeral, then went into the drug rehab program.
Fawcett left nearly all of her $6 million estate to her son. She appointed two trustees “to make sure the money supports her son’s journey into sobriety, rather than giving him the means to destroy himself.”
