Griffin O'Neal arrested on suspicion of battery

Griffin O'Neal, the son of actor Ryan O'Neal, was arrested at his suburban San Diego home on New Year's Eve on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic battery, U-T San Diego reported Thursday. He is being held at San Diego Central Jail on $10,000 bail.

A sheriff's department spokeswoman told the newspaper that a family member called 911 to report a disturbance because of someone drinking too much at the home. The spokeswoman said deputies determined through witnesses that O'Neal, 47, was being aggressive toward his wife.

O'Neal is to be sentenced next week in a separate case in which he drove under the influence of drugs in August, causing a head-on collision that injured another motorist.
