Farrah Fawcett’s son is wanted by police after violating his probation.
According to Mail Online, Redmond O’Neal, 30, has had a warrant for his arrest out since last month. He was arrested back in 2011 on drug-related charges, and went to jail for several months for heroin possession. He has been on probation since. Many believed that Redmond was doing better, as a judge allowed him to remove an electronic monitoring bracelet last fall.

Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal’s son being wanted by police is somewhat surprising because many people believed that he had learned a lesson and got himself clean. He seemed to be doing really well and had managed to keep himself out of trouble for a couple of years… until now.
For many years, Redmond was having some problems getting along with his dad, but sources say that the two had bonded over the past couple of years and were in a better place. In fact, the two were seen together in 2013 at the 3rd Annual American Humane Association Hero Awards.
Unfortunately, it sounds like Redmond may have fallen off the wagon. His father has not commented on the case.

According to Star Pulse, Redmond failed to keep up with his regular doctor appointments, which was required as part of his probation. Court documents also cited drug use as a reason for his warrant. In 2011, Ryan O’Neal told the media that he felt as though his son never actually healed after losing his mother (Farrah passed away in 2009). Unfortunately, a lot of kids turn to drugs and find themselves getting into trouble after such a significant loss.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, reps for O’Neal have also declined to comment at this time. If this is not some kind of misunderstanding, many hope that Redmond gets help, and puts his drug use behind him for good.
“He’s an addict. Addicts keep using until they want to stop. We’re praying for him every day,” said his sister, Tatum O’Neal, back in 2011.
