    More legal woes for the O'Neal family.

    Griffin O'Neal pleaded not guilty today to charges stemming from a head-on collision in San Pasqual, Calif., two months ago when he veered into oncoming traffic and struck another car.

    But there's a lot more where that came from...

    According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the 46-year-old faces six felony and misdemeanor counts including driving under the influence causing injury, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a controlled substance. If convicted, O'Neal could be sent to prison for up to 11 years and six months.

    Deputy District Attorney Vanessa DuVall told San Diego Superior Court Judge David M. Szumowski that O'Neal was under the influence of drugs during the crash, and toxicology tests showed he had amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana and Xanax in his blood.

    As if that wasn't enough, rock cocaine and loaded weapons were found in the car.

    The judge ordered O'Neal to stop driving while the case is ongoing and also reduced his bail from $200,000 to $35,000.
