Redmond O'Neal arrested for alleged robbery

Troubled Redmond O'Neal has been arrested for armed robbery

There was no information on whether O'Neal's father reached out to him following the arrest.

The Los Angeles Police Department arrested Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal's troubled son Redmond on Tuesday after he allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven store in Santa Monica.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirms to PEOPLE that O'Neal also threatened the clerk with a knife and demanded to take out money from the register.

"O'Neal was detained and identified as suspect from the robbery", the spokesperson continued.

A short time later, the LAPD says Redmond was stopped by officers and found to be in possession of a knife, which matched the description the clerk gave of the weapon used in the crime. However, he is now being kept in custody on a felony robbery charge.

The Blast was the first to report the news of his arrest.

O'Neal fled the scene but the 33-year-old didn't get too far.

In July 2015, Redmond was sentenced to three years in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation but was credited for almost a year served by his trial judge. He was released from prison for a brief moment to attend Fawcett's funeral.

Fawcett's son has a long history of drug addiction through most of his adult life.

In September 2011, Redman's probation was revoked after he admitted to using narcotics in court ordered rehab - just weeks after the program was imposed following his no contest plea to felony gun possession and heroin possession in August 2011.

Three years ago, O'Neal's half-sister Tatum (daughter of Joanna Moore) revealed that she was extremely anxious for him.

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'.

"I love him, but I have never seen a more scary side of addiction", she said. From what I've seen, there is no way he's going to survive'.
