(Newser) – 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.

its cool, but when you seen close friends get hooked to painkillers because the negligence of doctors, and then have to go through the cycles with them you learn to be more sympathetic about the situation. no one ever TRIES to get addicted to substances, it just happens...through many reasons whether it be because of a more experimental lifestyle or for pain purposes, regardess its a hole that one must dig for a long time.

He is Ryan O'Neals son. It's totally expected.
