Griffin O’Neal Pleads Guilty To Driving Under Influence Of Drugs

Griffin O’Neal Pleads Guilty

Griffin O’Neal, the son of actor Ryan O’Neal, has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs stemming from a head-on collision that injured another driver earlier this year.

O’Neal pleaded guilty in San Diego to two felonies – driving under the influence and possession of a firearm by a felon. O’Neal also acknowledged to the court the fact that he has a 1992 conviction for shooting into an unoccupied vehicle. San Diego County prosecutors contend O’Neal was on drugs on Aug. 2 when he veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another car.

O’Neal’s defense attorney said at an earlier court hearing that her client had been trying to help his half-brother, Redmond O’Neal, who had been arrested on suspicion of heroin possession on the same day. If convicted, Griffin O’Neal faces up to four years in prison.
