Ryan O’Neal charged with meth possession



Actor’s 23-year-old son, Redmond, has also been charged


The Associated Press

MALIBU, Calif.Ryan O’Neal and his son, Redmond, were charged Wednesday with possession of methamphetamine.


Both face felony drug possession charges, deputy district attorney James Garrison said. Redmond O’Neal, 23, also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of pepper spray.


He and his 67-year-old actor father are scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 13.


The father and son were arrested Sept. 17 after deputies searched their Malibu home, part of Redmond’s probation. Police said drugs were found on Redmond and in Ryan O’Neal’s living area.


Ryan O’Neal’s attorney said the drugs did not belong to his client.


“It’s unfortunate because Ryan O’Neal didn’t possess methamphetamine, doesn’t use methamphetamine and it wasn’t his methamphetamine,” attorney Mark Werksman said. “He never should have been prosecuted for this. We intend to vigorously challenge these charges in court, where they should be dismissed.”

Ryan O’Neal and his son were being booked on suspicion of narcotics possession this morning after a probation search at the actor’s Malibu home, authorities said.


Deputies found Redmond O’Neal, 24, in possession of methamphetamine while a vial of the drug was found in Ryan O’Neal’s bedroom, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.


The father and son will be held in lieu of $10,000 bail, he said.


The O’Neals were detained shortly after 7:15 a.m. during a probation search related to a case involving Redmond O’Neal. The two were taken to the sheriff’s Malibu/Lost Hills station.


Redmond, whose mother is actress Farrah Fawcett, was arrested last year on charges related to carrying heroin and crystal meth while driving under the influence in Malibu.


He pleaded not guilty to drug possession and one misdemeanor DUI charge as part of a deal intended to help him avoid jail. He was sentenced to three years probation and $1,688 in fines for the DUI charge.


In another case from 2005, Redmond O’Neal was placed on probation stemming from an arrest on suspicion of methamphetamine and cocaine possession.


Ryan O’Neal, 67, was arrested last year on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and negligent discharge of a firearm after firing a gunshot during an argument with another son, Griffin O’Neal.


The actor told authorities that Griffin, 43, picked up a fireplace poker and started swinging it. Griffin grazed him four or five times and “aimed at my head, I ducked, he hit his own girlfriend in the head,” Ryan O’Neal said at the time.


The actor said he fired a warning shot intended to scare his son.


The elder O’Neal was nominated for an Oscar for the 1970 movie Love Story.
