Redmond O’Neal was allowed to leave jail for three hours over the weekend to visit his mother Farrah Fawcett, currently battling cancer, according to People. “A sergeant and a deputy drove him to his mother’s home [Saturday] and he’s now back in custody,” said L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore. O’Neal is being held until his April 29 hearing, stemming from his most recent arrest for narcotics possession and attempting to bring narcotics into a jail.
