Ryan O’Neal, 67, and his 23-year-old son, Redmond, were charged Wednesday with possession of methamphetamine. Both face felony drug possession charges. Redmond O’Neal also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of pepper spray.
The father and son are scheduled to be arraigned on November 13. Ryan and Redmond were arrested September 17 after deputies searched their Malibu home, which was conducted under the terms of Redmond’s probation from an earlier drug possession case. Reports say drugs were found on Redmond and in Ryan O’Neal’s living area.
Ryan O’Neal’s attorney stated 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.”
