17 of 48: Redmond O'Neal, the son of actor Ryan O'Neal and late actress Farrah Fawcett, was detained on Aug. 2, 2011 on suspicion of heroin possession and for allegedly violating his probation, following years of drug-related arrests and rehab stints.

Police officers pulled him over in Santa Monica, California, after he allegedly drove through a red light, the Los Angeles Times reported. They later found heroin in his vehicle, the publication quoted a police spokesperson as saying.

He was detained at jail near Los Angeles in the morning. He was not granted bail. On Aug. 24, 2011, he pleaded no contest to charges of felony possession of heroin and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and was sentenced to a year's worth of rehab and five years of extra probation. On Sept. 14, 2011, he was sent back to jail for allegedly using methamphetamines while in the treatment facility, which marks a violation of his probation. He is set to appear at a hearing on Oct. 7, 2011.

Redmond O'Neal, Fawcett's only child, has battled substance abuse for years and has been arrested on drug-related charges before. His previous probation stemmed from a 2009 heroin charge.

He was treated for heroin addiction in 2004. In 2008, he suffered a relapse and was arrested and convicted of drunk driving and drug possession and was given probation. Also that year, he and his father were arrested at the actor's Malibu home for alleged possession of methamphetamines. The two were eventually ordered to complete treatment programs.

In April 2009, Redmond O'Neal was arrested and charged on suspicion of bringing heroin into a Los Angeles jail, which he had visited with a friend. He was detained behind bars and was released temporarily to be able to go see Fawcett, who was battling cancer, in a hospital. The 'Charlie's Angels' actress died the following June at age 62. Redmond O'Neal was also allowed to attend her funeral.

In September of that year, Redmond O'Neal pleaded no contest to his charge. He was sentenced to 249 days in county jail and given probation for three years. He served 167 days in custody and released early, after which he was sent to rehab. He completed his treatment for drug addiction in August 2010.
