Ryan O'Neal Emerges After Arrest

2/5/2007 4:20 PM PST
Ryan O'Neal found time for a bit of housekeeping this morning, despite the legal tumult surrounding a fight with eldest son Griffin and his subsequent arrest on assault charges Saturday.

Lensmen spotted the "Love Story" star bringing trashcans back into the Malibu home where the altercation took place, before heading out to court with other son Redmond O'Neal. Redmond, Ryan's 22-year-old son with Farrah Fawcett, was not involved in the Saturday night fight.

As TMZ first reported yesterday, O'Neal was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and negligent discharge of a weapon. Through his rep, O'Neal said today that he was acting defensively in the incident. Ryan alleges that Griffin swung at him with a fireplace poker and that Griffin missed him and hit his own girlfriend, injuring her.
