Redmond O'Neal, the 26-year-old son of Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett, was charged Thursday with felony heroin possession and illegally possessing a firearm.
Redmond has been jailed without bail since being arrested Tuesday after being stopped by police for allegedly failing to stop for a red light. He has a string of previous drug-related arrests and is currently on probation for an earlier case.
Also Tuesday, Redmond's half-brother Griffin was involved in a car accident in Escondido, CA. Griffin, 46, was rushed to the hospital after a collision in which his vehicle veered into oncoming traffic. He was admitted to the hospital Tuesday afternoon but was released a short time later in stable condition.
