The troubled son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal has been arrested again ... this time for an alleged robbery. The 33-year-old was reportedly equipped with a knife matching the description of the weapon used at the convenience store. "The suspect entered the store with a knife and approached the clerk and demanded for money from the register", according to the LAPD.

A call was then placed to the cops around 2:30 a.m. that Tuesday morning about the incident involving O'Neal. The Blast was the first to report news of Redmond's arrest. "Officers found the knife and cash in [O'Neal's] possession".

The arresting document notes that his bail would have been $50,000; but because he is now being kept in custody on a probation hold he is being denied bail.

Redmond's attorney and a rep for Ryan did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's requests for comment.

Redmon O'Neal, the son of Emmy nominee Farrah Fawcett and Oscar-nominated actor Ryan O'Neal, has had a run-in with law enforcement.


In 2015, he was sentenced to three years in state prison for violating his probation, but was released just over a year later. The son of the late Charlie's Angels star and actor O'Neal had struggled with drug addiction for most of his adult life.

Redmond's half-sister Tatum O'Neal, who has fought her own battles with addiction, described his addiction problems as 'so bad that it breaks my heart'. Nobody knows what to do with Redmond.

And back in 2011, O'Neal's probation was revoked after he admitted to using narcotics while in court-ordered rehab. On the day that his mother died from cancer in June 2009, O'Neal was in jail and was attending a court hearing.
