Ryan O'Neal and son arrested

  • 25comments

Bones actor Ryan O'Neal and his son, Redmond, were arrested today after an early-morning police raid of their Malibu home. The pair were taken into custody and charged with possession of methamphetamine, a highly addictive (and very gross) Schedule II controlled substance, and released on $10,000 bail each.

After a June conviction for driving under the influence and possession of heroin and methamphetamine, Redmond O'Neal was sentenced to three years' probation and enrollment in a drug treatment program. Reuters reports that today's events were related to the terms of his probation.

Father and son are not the only O'Neals facing drug problems this year: Ryan's sister, Rescue Me actress Tatum O'Neal, was arrested in June while buying crack and powder cocaine from a homeless man on New York's lower East Side. At first she claimed to be "researching a role," but later admitted her addiction and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Brother Griffin O'Neal has also battled drug addiction in the past.

Redmond, 23, is the child of Ryan's marriage to actress Farrah Fawcett.
