Redmond O’Neal Could Face Three Year Prison Sentence; Maximum Of Nine Years:

Redmond O’Neal, the son of the late Farrah Fawcett, who was arrested by Santa Monica police on Aug. 2 for possessing drug and weapons, admitted today at the LAX courthouse he violated his probation.

The 26-year-old was taken into custody and is scheduled to return to the courthouse for sentencing on Oct. 7.

Sandi Gibbons, of the District Attorney’s Office, told The Mirror on Aug. 24 that if O’Neal did not complete his probation under the terms imposed by the court, he is looking at three years in state prison.

RadarOnline yesterday reported that O’Neal “tested positive for drugs on Saturday, while in his current West Los Angeles rehab facility, and the dirty test is being reported to the court.”

O’Neal was sentenced Aug. 24 at the LAX Courthouse to a one year live-in rehabilitation program.

He pleaded no contest to the charges that stemmed from SMPD officers stopping him at about 8:45 a.m. on Aug. 2 where they found he was in possession of heroin and marijuana.

O’Neal was seen by a patrol officer arguing with someone at a gas station on the corner of Lincoln Boulevard and Olympic Boulevard (near the I-10 Santa Monica Freeway entrance).

This aroused the officer’s interest so he followed O’Neal as he jumped into his black 2010 Nissan Altima and sped off, blowing through a red turn signal in the process.

After he was stopped, Santa Monica Police Department officer conducted a search and found the drugs.

He was also on probation for a felony drug count for his April 2009 arrest in a county jail parking lot in Castaic.

He could face a further six years in state prison in connection with this case.
