SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A San Diego judge sentenced Griffin O'Neal to 16 months in prison for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of a firearm by a felon, E! reported.
The charges stem from a car crash the 47-year-old actor caused, injuring a motorist last summer. A gun was found in O'Neal's vehicle at the scene.
The son of film star Ryan O'Neal pleaded guilty to the crimes in November. He has a history of prior DUI arrests and was placed on 18 months' probation, following a 1986 boating accident that killed filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola's son Gian-Carlo.
Griffin O'Neal's film credits include "The Escape Artist," "April Fool's Day," "Assault of the Killer Bimbos" and "Ghoulies III."
