Redmond O'Neal Arrested on Drug Charge, Again

ABC News(SANTA MONICA, Calif.) -- reports Redmond O'Neal has been arrested on a drug charge once again. The 26-year-old son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was stopped by police in Santa Monica Tuesday morning for running a red light, at which time officers reportedly found heroin in his vehicle.

O'Neal, was booked for violating felony drug probation and for being in possession of a controlled substance, and was also ticketed for running the red light.  Though he was found to not be under the influence when he was arrested, he is being held without bail pending a court appearance on Thursday. O'Neal could land back in prison for the probation violation.

O'Neal has been battling addiction for years, and was sent to jail in 2009 after being caught with heroin in the visitor's parking lot of the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic, California; a judge allowed him to temporarily leave jail so he could attend his mother's funeral after she died of cancer in June 2009.
