Redmond O'Neal, the 26-year-old son of actors Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett, was arrested last night in Santa Monica after he allegedly ran a red light. Officers say a search of his car uncovered heroin, according to KTLA.

This is not the first time the young Mister O'Neal has found himself in a tangle of substance abuse and the law; at the time of mom Fawcett's death, special arrangements had to be made to allow O'Neal to be temporarily let out of jail to attend her funeral. Afterwards, he was sent to a drug rehab facility. O'Neal is being held without bail, and charges are pending.
