Hours after one son was arrested for drug possession on Tuesday, his other son got into a gnarly head-on car accident -- and now, Hollywood legend Ryan O'Neal tells TMZ, his family is "falling apart."

The first son, 26-year-old Redmond O'Neal -- who has a long history with drugs -- pled "not guilty" to  heroin possession and unlawful possession of a firearm this morning ... but Ryan tells us, the kid "has a real problem."

Ryan hasn't seen his other son -- 46-year-old Griffin O'Neal -- in years ... but thankfully, he heard through the grapevine ... Griffin wasn't seriously injured in Tuesday's head-on collision.

All in all, Ryan's still optimistic despite the familial setbacks -- insisting, "We'll come back."

Maybe if these kids had a FATHER in their life " the family wouldnt be falling apart" I mean he and Tatum just reunited after 17 yrs. Farrah made Ryan make up with Redmond and who knows what happened with the other kid. Ryan maybe if you werent so selfish they would have been a bit better off.

Good gosh. For God's sake. These kids had a privileged life. And Farrah didn't get cancer from Ryan. And Tatum was like what 15 years old when he was first with Farrah? Tatum did not know her place was as a DAUGHTER AND NOT YOUR FATHER'S EQUAL. Tatum was classically jealous of Farrah. Farrah was the sweetest thing ever. They tried and tried with Tatum but what they needed to do was tough love. Which they didn't do. These kids lived a no holds barred life. Free and easy. See where that got them?!

This man is a loser, always was a loser. He treated his girl friend like garbage, and didn't even know his own daughter when he met her..actually trying to hit on her. He's trash.

Why doesn't Ryan quit is stupid 'reality' show and actually try helping his kids. After a few years of rehab they should be moved completely away from this sad family.

Ryan o'Neal's Family "fell apart because of the Father he has been. Did he think it would bond on it's own?

Ryan O'Neal was never a father to any of his children. His family can't fall apart because it was never a family. It was just a selfish prick who made children he did not parent.

His son, Patrick, with Leigh Taylor-Young is the only one in the family who hasn't been in trouble.

I heard a wise woman say yesterday, "You are the tree and your kids are the fruit". If your child repeatedly gets in trouble, check the tree. Ryan, check yourself.
