Farrah Fawcett’s Son Redmond O’Neal Arrested For Allegedly Robbing A 7-Eleven At Knifepoint!
UPDATE! 3:04 P.M. EST: According to The Blast on Thursday, O’Neal was charged with two counts of possessing a controlled substance, one for heroin and one for methamphetamine.
He was also charged with second-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection/ingestion device, and two counts of possessing a controlled substance, says the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday, and prosecutors are seeking a bail of $125,000.
Redmond O’Neal was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly robbing a Los Angeles 7-Eleven at knifepoint.
According to The Blast, the son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal walked into the Santa Monica-area store armed with a knife and demanded that the clerk take out money from the register. He even purchased a Slurpee before the robbery.
Police say the 33-year-old fled the store after the employee handed over $60 in cash just before 2:30 a.m. Luckily, a good samaritan had witnessed Redmond acting suspicious and already alerted police.
Cops were reportedly on the phone with the witness when Redmond pulled the knife on the clerk, and apparently heard the entire incident play out.
Shortly after, Redmond was arrested nearby on a robbery charge. Detectives say they recovered a knife from him that matched the clerk’s description.
Redmond is being held on $50,000 bail. A judge will determine if he will be released on Thursday in court.
This arrest marks just the latest of Redmond’s run-ins with the law. He was sentenced to three years in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in July 2015 and his probation has been revoked multiple times over the past decade.
In September 2011, Redman’s probation was revoked after he admitted to using narcotics in court ordered rehab — just weeks after the program was imposed following his no contest plea to felony gun possession and heroin possession in August 2011. (His mugshot from that arrest pictured above.)
