Ryan O'Neal, 67, and Redmond O'Neal, 24, were booked by Los Angeles police after authorities found illegal substances during a probation search involving Redmond at his father's Malibu home. Redmond was allegedly found to be in possession of methamphetamine, while a vial of the drug was found in Ryan O'Neal's bedroom, Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed.

And Redmond's Oscar-winning older sister, Tatum, has spoken out in defense of the pair, recalling her own struggle with addiction. She says: "Addiction, if untreated, can lead to jail, institutions and death. I love them both, and I am sorry to hear about this."

The actress hit the headlines in June when she was arrested in New York after attempting to buy crack and powder cocaine from a homeless man.

Her father and younger sibling are currently being held on $10,000 bail.
