LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles judge revoked the probation of Redmond O'Neal after the son of actor Ryan O'Neal and the late actress Farrah Fawcett admitted using drugs again.

People.com reported O'Neal, 26, was taken into police custody Thursday after he confessed he used narcotics while in a court-ordered rehabilitation facility where he was serving a year sentence on separate drug and weapons charges.

He is to be sentenced Oct. 7 for his latest transgression.

"This morning Redmond admitted to a violation of using methamphetamines while on probation," People.com quoted O'Neal attorney Mike Brewer as saying. "There is no guarantee what Redmond's new sentence will be."
