    Ryan O'Neal Arrested For Assulting Son

    http://www.wsbtv.com/entertainment/10927325/detail.html

    MALIBU, Calif. -- Police have arrested Oscar-nominated actor Ryan O'Neal on assault charges.


    Deputies and paramedics arrived at O'Neal's Malibu residence early Saturday morning on a battery call. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. John Benedict said the actor allegedly assaulted his adult son, Griffin.


    Benedict did not provide details on what caused the fight and says an investigation is under way.


    The 65-year-old actor was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and negligent discharge of a firearm. He was booked and released on a $50,000 bond.


    Benedict said no one was treated for injuries.


    The twice-divorced Ryan O'Neal, known for his boyish good looks, went from a TV soap opera to an Oscar-nominated role in "Love Story." With his first wife, Joanna Moore, he has two children, Griffin and actress Tatum O'Neal. He also has a son, Redmond, with actress Farrah Fawcett.


    In 2001, he was diagnosed with leukemia.


    Griffin O'Neal has a history of trouble. In 1986, he was acquitted of manslaughter for a boating accident that killed director Francis Ford Coppola's 23-year-old son, Gian-Carlo. In 1992, he avoided a possible three-year jail sentence by pleading no contest to charges he shot at his estranged girlfriend's unoccupied car.

    I read this earlier, I wonder what this was all about? I want to read that book "Paper Life" by Tatum, they had a horrible upbringing. I can only imagine what happened here?

    It seems there was always bad blood between Ryan and Griffin. Griffin is a troubled soul ... but then again Ryan would never win a father of the year award either. A very dysfunctional family to say the least.

    I was really disappointed to read this.

    I was hoping Farrah's illness (and now, clean bill of health) would have made Ryan take stock of his life and really love his family the way they deserve.

    I was wishing for that too Idaho. It seems like trouble follows them. Very sad.

    Family history: I remember when Ryan punched Griffin's front teeth out about 15 years ago---Tatum got into heroin and lost her kids to MacEnroe--and Redmond has also had some drug problems--could be genetic factors here also--but E channel did a THS on them and said Ryan was effectively a really lazy father who let his kids do whatever they wanted as teenagers,sounds like they were pretty spoiled as well as having selfish parents

    That family is a mess. I can't say I was surprised to read this.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I think we're supposed to say "alleged" until he's convicted.

    Oneal must have never been charged, but I remember seeing pics of Farrah with some bruises and I think a busted lip.
