His bail was set at $45,000 for the assault that took place on April 20, 2018 at Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail.

As Radar has reported, O’Neal, 33, has exhibited bizarre behavior while in custody and recently suffered a total meltdown.

“He has lost his mind,” an informant revealed. “Redmond believes he has a chip implanted in his brain.”

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.

Radar exclusively reported the stabbing victim, Anton Folkerson, from the May 4 incident faces “years of recovery,” and spent two days in a coma after the brutal assault.
