Ryan is seen in this video during the very moment he was confronted with the photos of the victim laying in his hospital bed.
When asked if he'd be willing to help out the victim, Ryan replied: "If I must, I will. He Redmond can take care of himself — he’s not my responsibility," he quipped. "He is not well."
As Radar reported exclusively, Redmond faces 22 years in jail for attempted murder, armed robbery and other charges.
According to sources interviewed by Radar, O’Neal allegedly stabbed that victim multiple times in the torso and head, causing possible brain injuries. O’Neal allegedly left blood evidence and fingerprints at the crime scene, which led authorities to identify him as a suspect through DNA, sources said.
Redmond already in jail and is facing serious felony charges, including second-degree robbery for holding up a 7-11 in Santa Monica on May 8 at about 3 a.m.
He's also facing charges from the same night including 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, meth and heroin.
Redmond, who is being held in Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles at more than $1.31 million bail, has asked to be observed by a doctor, who would determine whether or not he is mentally competent to stand trial for his various criminal charges. The dangerous celebrity spawn has pleaded not guilty to the charges connected to the May 8 robbery, but he has yet to be arraigned on the new charges. We pay for juicy info!
