Farrah Fawcett's son charged with drug possession

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Redmond O'Neal, the 24-year-old son of actors Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett, was charged on Tuesday with felony drug possession, after he was found with heroin while trying to visit a jail.

Redmond O'Neal's arrest Sunday came as Fawcett, who suffers from cancer, was treated at a Los Angeles hospital for bleeding after a medical procedure in Germany.

Authorities say Redmond O'Neal was taking a friend to visit an inmate at a Los Angeles County jail when he was stopped and found to have heroin in his car. Redmond O'Neal was in jail on Tuesday, and his arraignment was postponed to April 24.

His detention is the latest in a string of drug-related arrests, and it comes as he was free on bail in another case in which he was charged with possession of methamphetamine.

That case resulted from a September 2008 search of the O'Neals' home in Malibu. The search also turned up methamphetamine in Ryan O'Neal's bedroom, and in January the star of 1970 film "Love Story" pleaded guilty to possessing the drug and was ordered to complete a rehabilitation program.

Fawcett gained fame as a pinup model and television actress on "Charlie's Angels" in the 1970s. She earned Emmy nominations for her TV roles in 1984's "The Burning Bed," 1989's "Small Sacrifices" and 2001's "The Guardian."

The actress, who is suffering from anal cancer, was expected to return home from the hospital this week.
