Redmond O’Neal is the son of the dearly departed Farrah Fawcett and the man who once provided his own daughter with a #MeToo moment at his longtime girlfriend’s funeral no less – Ryan O’Neal. Redmond has a looonnnggg history of drug use and crime and he’s obviously still hurting. Last month, he was pinched by the cops for armed robbery. This month? Attempted murder! We can probably blame Dad, right?
People reports that Redmond, who is currently cooling his gingerness in a jail cell after allegedly holding up a convenience store last month, has had several charges tacked on to that one by the Los Angeles DA’s office. The robbery was supposedly just one stop on a “crime spree” that Redmond threw himself in early May. He’s accused of stabbing or trying to stab five people and yet, that funeral incident with Ryan and daughter Tatum O’Neal still seems like the worst crime mentioned in this post.
O’Neal, who has struggled with drug addiction for years, allegedly “randomly attacked five men in unprovoked confrontations,” the LAPD said in a statement provided to PEOPLE. Two of the five men were seriously injured.
Redmond, who would appear to have a pretty good sense of humor about himself seeing as he has a Superman “S” tattoo on his chest, allegedly pulled some crazy shit between May 2 and May 8 when he was arrested for trying to rob a 7-11 in Venice Beach, CA. If Redmond ever gets out of jail, I’m probably going to ask Michael K to delete this post because he supposedly stabbed a man for looking at him funny. Yikes.
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. The man sustained minor injuries to his face.
And if Redmond didn’t have a bottle handy, he supposedly just used his fists.
Then in the early hours of the next day, police claim, when a man tried to speak to him outside a convenience store, Redmond punched the man in the head, causing minor injuries, before throwing him to the ground.
Convenience stores don’t seem to be healthy places for this dude. Following this, on May 4, Redmond went to the beach. It turns out that the beach isn’t a place for good choices, either.
On May 4 around 5.00pm, a man fitting Redmond’s description walked up to another man on the famed Venice Beach Boardwalk, stabbing him, police said.
“Initially, the victim thought that the suspect had merely ‘punched’ him in the back,” authorities said in the statement. “However, once paramedics arrived, the paramedics discovered that the victim had sustained a serious stab wound to the left side of his body.”
Redmond wasn’t done there.
Just three hours later a man was found laying in a pool of blood on a Venice street with stab wounds to his face and upper body.
According to police, a surveillance camera captured a man, who matched Redmond’s description, walking away from the scene. The man sustained “significant and serious stab wounds and cuts to his face, neck, and upper body.”
And on the day of the convenience store robbery, someone made the dire mistake of getting his coffee wrong.
In the final incident that police attribute to Redmond, he allegedly became belligerent inside a coffee shop and when an employee intervened, police say Redmond pulled out a folding knife and “lunged, jabbed and threatened to harm the employee with the knife.”
Redmond was supposed to appear in court on Friday to face the armed robbery charges (he’s pled not guilty and been denied bail) but now he’s also additionally charged with “one count of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of criminal threats, one count of brandishing a knife and one count of battery.”
Yeah, it sounds like Redmond is crazy as hell and needs to stay locked up for a good long while. But still, why isn’t Dad in jail for hitting on his daughter? There’s gotta be a law against that, right? AT HIS GIRLFRIEND’S FUNERAL.
