Son of Ryan O'Neal, Farrah Fawcett is charged with attempted murder

The son of Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett is now facing an attempted murder charge after LAPD detectives turned over new evidence linking Redmond O'Neal to a "crime spree" that includes a vicious stabbing in Venice Beach and other crimes in the Palms neighbourhood in Los Angeles, RadarOnline.com can report exclusively. The district attorney also added two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count each of criminal threats, brandishing a knife and battery. He also was charged with possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection device and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

The LAPD says O'Neal was arrested May 8 after they responded to calls about a convenience store armed robbery. Police said the suspect, described as having red hair and distinct tattoos, randomly attacked five men in unprovoked confrontations.

O'Neal is accused of stabbing a Venice man in the side on Monday and for allegedly stabbing another man numerous times in the nearby area later that night.

Police said they connected the earlier five crimes to the suspect while he was being held on the robbery charge.

O'Neal allegedly got into a fight at a coffee shop and threatened staff with a knife on May 5, police said.

Redmond James O'Neal is seen in a booking photo released by LAPD on June 8, 2018. O'Neal pleaded not guilty to all of these charges. Redmond O'Neal remains in the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.


Authorities have not released a motive and said the crimes seem random, but it may have started as an argument between unknown people.

Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett.

O'Neal has not entered a plea for the new attempted murder charge.

Fawcett, a former star of TV's "Charlie's Angels", died of cancer at age 62 in 2009.

O'Neal was previously arrested in 2008 for a DUI and drug possession, and again in 2011 for heroin possession.

In 2015, his half sister, Oscar-winning actress Tatum O'Neal, told People magazine that Redmond's drug addiction was spiraling out of control and that she had urged him to go to 12-step meetings with her. In 2016, he was released after nearly two years in prison.
