Redmond O'Neal is being kept separate from other inmates at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown Los Angeles.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Redmond was busted with heroin while attempting to visit a friend in jail this past weekend. His father Ryan has refused to bail him out.
"Redmond is sequestered away from the general population because of the celebrity notoriety he is associated with,” Steve Whitmore, spokesperson for the Sheriff's Department tells RadarOnline.com.
Redmond’s next court date is April 24.
His mother Farrah Fawcett is still in the hospital battling complications from her cancer treatment. Despite some erroneous reports by outlets parroting official “spin,” she was unconscious most of the first few days she was hospitalized. Her doctor has now publicly admitted the cancer has spread to her liver.
