O'Neal was found with heroin and the prescription drug Xanax, while visiting a friend incarcerated at the Pritchess Detention Center in Castic, north of Los Angeles.

Bail was set at $75,000 for O'Neal, who was already on bail for a drug arrest last year in a case involving his father. He remains in custody and is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday.

Redmond O'Neal and his father were arrested last year at the actor's Malibu home after deputies said they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia during a search.

Redmond O'Neal was on probation for a previous drug conviction and has pleaded not guilty in that case.
