Farrah Fawcett’s Son Faces Attempted Murder Charge After Violent Crime Spree
Jun 10 2018 by Francis Osborne
Police say Redmond James O'Neal, the son of actors Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett, is responsible for a "violent crime spree" last month that left several people injured in Los Angeles. The district attorney also added two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count each of criminal threats, brandishing a knife and battery. In addition to second degree robbery, he was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection/ingestion device, and two counts of possessing a controlled substance (meth and heroin).
On 8 May, O'Neal was arrested following an armed robbery after he was identified as the suspect in a 7-Eleven stick-up, the police report. He matched witnesses' descriptions and security footage of a red-headed male with distinct facial tattoos.
O'Neal is accused of stabbing a Venice man in the side on Monday and for allegedly stabbing another man numerous times in the nearby area later that night.
O'Neal allegedly got into a fight at a coffee shop and threatened staff with a knife on May 5, police said. In 2008, authorities charged him and his father on suspicion of felony drug possession after Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies conducting a probation search of the actor's Malibu home said they found methamphetamine on Redmond and in his father's bedroom.
