    Ryan O'Neal, son Redmond booked on suspicion of drug possession

    Ryan O'Neal and his son were booked today on suspicion of narcotics possession 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 later were released on $10,000 bail each, 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."

    Farrah Fawcett was not arrested last year. Do you work for the tabloids? Don't post lies. Whatever happened today is Ryan and Redmond's problem.

    Are you their cousin or attorney? Why so defensive?
    I've never met them; but if 1/10 of the news printed in legitimate newspapers and not The Globe or National Inquirer is true then I agree with Jasondawgxxx. That is a seriously messed up family. It's sad, and happens across the socio-economic strata.

    STOP!!!

    You missed the commas. Look:

    I think all American men of a certain age have a very soft spot in their heart for Farrah. I applaud your devotion to America's angel.

    If you can find and post and actual arrest report (that does not exist)for FF with the LAPD I will shut up and go to bed, but it does not exist. What you have is a google search with no proof. It's not a soft spot in my heart it's something else....Please PM me I'm not going into this on a public forum.

    You're missing the commas. The sentence, grammatically parsed, merely says that Redmond's mother is Farrah Fawcett, not that she was arrested.

    Read it again:

    The two bright red commas indicate that, "...whose mother is actress Farrah Fawcett," is a clause to the main subject of the sentence.

    You can prove this by removing the phrase entirely:

    Redmondwas arrested last year on charges related to carrying heroin and crystal meth while driving under the influence in Malibu.

    Once again, the sentence does not say that Farrah Fawcett was arrested

    In the end, you just have to realize how screwed up the whole thing is. 3 family members busted with drugs this year....i guess that's the dangers of money and fame.

    and isn't poor Farrah still battling cancer? yikes.

    but in the meanwhile no one cares if it happens in the housing projects every day...as it does, but it won't make headlines.
