Griffin O’Neal, son of Hollywood legend Ryan O'Neal, has pleaded not guilty to drug and firearm possession and driving under the influence after a head-on traffic collision that injured a motorist.
The San Diego Union-Tribune said O’Neal faces six felony and misdemeanour charges related to the August 2 accident.
Deputy District Attorney Vanessa DuVall said the 46-year-old veered into oncoming traffic and hit a car, causing head and back injuries to its driver.
DuVall says blood tests showed O’Neal had ingested amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana and Xanax. Crack cocaine and loaded firearms were found in his car.
Defence lawyer Heather Boxeth said O’Neal had been trying to help his half-brother Redmond O’Neal, who had been arrested on suspicion of heroin possession the same day.
