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

The son of actor Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett has been charged with attempted murder in connection with a violent crime spree.

The 33-year-old is also facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats and battery, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

Prior to O'Neal's arrest, a crime spree had wreaked havoc on that area of West L.A., with five men being randomly attacked, according to LAPD.

CBS Los Angeles reports two men were seriously injured, including one who was stabbed in the face. The police also charged him with possession of drugs including the possession of a smoking device.

O'Neal, 33, had been arrested May 8 on suspicion of armed robbery after a heist at a 7-Eleven store.

All five alleged attacks involve a suspect whose description, at least partially, matches that of O'Neal, including being white, with red hair and distinct tattoos.

Police allege on May 2, Redmond "became angry" after a man "appeared to look at him", then punched the man before trying to stab him with a broken bottle. Authorities had identified him as the suspect in a 7-Eleven robbery.

Police say O'Neal was later found on the street carrying cash and a knife.

In a press statement released to the public from the LAPD, the detectives from the Pacific Area stood before the court on the 8th of June and presented their evidence. As it was previously reported, O'Neal pleaded guilty on the 11th of May to robbing a store in Santa Monica.

"It appears, though, based on what we know now, that it just started as an argument between unknown persons and quickly escalated with the violent acts", he said. Scotty Steven told KABC.

He is being held in a Los Angeles jail.

The troubled son of actors Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett has been charged with attempted murder.

According to a copy of Fawcett's will, obtained by RadarOnline, the actress left the most of her money - $4.5 million - to Redmond O'Neal, who was in a court-mandated drug rehab program at the time, according to ABC News. He's been arrested multiple times for drug possession, including in 2008 and 2011. Redmond was her only child.
