Fawcett’s only child also believes “he’s being controlled by cops,” the source continued.

Last month O’Neal was housed in Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles. Online records showed O’Neal was transferred to the nearby Men’s Central Jail on June 17.

O’Neal faces a total of 12 felony and misdemeanor counts related to a crime spree that the troubled felon allegedly committed in Los Angeles between May 2 and May 8.

On May 8, O’Neal allegedly robbed a convenience store in Santa Monica after threatening a clerk with a knife and demanding money. O’Neal was subsequently charged with one felony 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.

Investigators also said O’Neal brandished a knife at an employee of a coffee shop on May 5. One day prior, on May 4, Fawcett’s troubled son allegedly stabbed a man with a knife.
