Redmond O'Neal has been busted again on drug charges. The son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal was taken into custody on Dec. 29 on a felony drug charge—the second violation of his probation for a 2008 drug arrest. O'Neal was ordered to go to an in-custody drug-treatment center in Pasadena for 30 days, Access Hollywood reports.

O'Neal had been on a 24-hour pass from a residential treatment center, reports the LA Times. "When he came back, he told the program counselors that he had used drugs," said an LA County sheriff's spokesman. He then tested positive for unspecified drugs. (More Redmond O'Neal stories.)
