Redmond, 33, has been housed at the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles since his arrest on May 8 and was being held without bail.
"Redmond has been transferred to Department 95 for mental evaluation," the court confirmed.
The celebrity spawn is facing several felony charges after allegedly holding up a 7-Eleven in Santa Monica. According to prosecutors, the drifter approached a clerk at about 3 a.m. with a knife and demanded money. The clerk, who was in fear for his life, gave O’Neal cash, a LAPD spokesperson told Radar exclusively.
O’Neal has been charged with second-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a smoking device, possession of an injection/ingestion device and two counts of possessing a controlled substance, which were meth and heroin.
Redmond could face a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
He has denied all of the charges.
As Radar reported exclusively, Redmond was a no show for a scheduled preliminary hearing in a Los Angeles court on Friday because he simply refused to get on the bus from jail. Redmond is now rescheduled for arraignment on June 8 at LAX Airport court.
