HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Redmond O'Neal has run into trouble with the law again.

The son of Oscar-nominated actor Ryan O'Neal and late actress Farrah Fawcett was arrested Dec. 29 on a drug-related probation violation, according to People.

The 24-year-old O'Neal appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom during a brief hearing Tuesday. He was ordered into a 30-day jail rehab facility pending a Feb. 2 sentencing hearing.

"It seems to me you haven't got a clue as to what recovery means," lectured Judge Michael Tynan. "It's a lifetime commitment. It's grinding, hard, painful work."

The younger O'Neal was previously warned that he would face jail time if he didn't clean up his act after a series of arrests and probation violations on drug charges.

Fawcett died last June at age 62 while her son was behind bars.
