Ryan O'Neal Charged in Drug Bust

10/15/2008 7:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Ryan O'Neal and his son Redmond have BOTH been charged with felony possession of methamphetamines.

The 67-year-old actor and his 23-year-old son were arrested at their Malibu home last month after a random probation sweep of the mansion turned up narcotics on Redmond's person and in Ryan's bedroom.

Redmond was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one misdemeanor count of illegal possession of pepper spray.

Redmond is on probation for a heroin and crystal meth bust earlier in the year.

Both men are scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 13th.

Have some close friends who are makeup artists in Hollywood. Have heard many stories about Ryan and Farrah. So, I read Tatum O'Neal's book a few years back. It's funny how much of the Hollywood gossip I heard was pretty accurate in her book. For the people who didn't believe her, she must feel very validated. It's a wonder she's alive. Ryan should have never had children. You too, Farrah. Read Tatum's book. You reap what you sow. Karma's a bitch.

Lunchbox...pepper spray is illegal in CA if you do not take some sort of class allowing you to legally carry it. Found out the hard way myself! Lame but just another thing to "beef up" the charges...

#18 is right. You have to have a permit to carry pepper spray in Calif. How many people know Ryan has another son? When his wife (Leigh-Taylor Young) divorced him, she took the boy out of Calif. and away from the Hollywood scene. Smart Lady!!
You very seldom hear about Patrick.

I don't see how or why it's anyone's business what these guys do in their own home... granted that it was a technically 'allowed' probation search and well, yes, there are more responsible and positive things one can do besides crystal, but really, I wouldn't want people scoping out what I do and have it made public or get judged by strangers, either. I figure to each his own. I'M certainly not perfect.... is ANYONE out there perfect??? Do YOU have skeletons in YOUR closet? Could YOU withstand an intensive investigation into your personal life and background and then have it all plastered all over the news in front of the public, to have them peck at you like jackdaws??? Well all right then.

Sadly, the nothing good comes to anyone who has much to do with Ryan O'Neal. What a toxic human being he is! The kid never had a chance and that's not his fault.

20. I don't see how or why it's anyone's business what these guys do in their own home


If someone on probation is dumb enough to keep drugs around the house knowing damn well that the cops are just itching to bust you then you DESERVE what happens to you.

21. Sin is Sin and apparently this whole family has chose to live a ungodly life without GOD.........period. Vengeance is mine ....sayeth the Lord...........the rest is in the it.

oh yaaaaaaaaaaa    

This poor woman has a disease that will get the best of her sooner rather than later, and this is what she has to fall asleep thinking abt at night, sort of reminds me of Elizabeth Edwards and how tough it must be for her to fall asleep at night. All comes down to choices in life and the choices of these men r causing her great pain. That is my bottomline.

Ryan has four messed up adult children from three different women. Is Ryan the common denominator or did the four kids make bad decisions all on their own?

Why is it that when these two get popped for dope - they are sick and need to go to rehab..but when any rapper - particularly DMX gets popped for WEED - not meth, not heroin...he is a thug and should be sentenced to life.

Things that make you go - WTF!
