LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The son of Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett was charged Thursday with felony heroin possession two days after his arrest during a traffic stop.

Redmond O’Neal, 26, is expected to be arraigned Thursday at the Airport Branch Courthouse. O’Neal also faces a charge of possessing a firearm by a felon.

O’Neal was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly failing to stop for a red light in Santa Monica and officers found heroin in the car. Redmond has a string of drug-related arrests and is on probation from a previous case.

O’Neal has been held without bail since Tuesday.

    It seems like there’s never any good news about this kid or his family, even though he’s been in and out of rehab more times than you can count on your hands. While I do feel he should be held accountable for his behavior, I can’t help but think that the dysfunctional and unstable environment that he apparently grew up in is a big factor in explaining why he’s always getting into trouble.

    Heroin addiction is so tragic. I hope this is his last bottom, and that he can get his life back together . . . and stay sober.

    Jail is not a good place for addicts . . . I hope he gets help.
