Note to self: When going anywhere near a jail, leave the drugs at home.

Redmond O'Neal, the 24-year-old son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, is back behind bars today after police allegedly found him carrying narcotics at a jail in Castaic, Calif.

Redmond and a friend were driving to visit a locked-up pal at the Pitchess Detention Center South when they were stopped at a routine security checkpoint and he admitted to having the drugs, according to authorities.

He was arrested on two felony counts—suspicion of possession of narcotics and
bringing narcotics into a jail—and is being held on $25,000 bail pending a Tuesday hearing.

The arrest comes amid news that Fawcett has been hospitalized since Thursday in her three-year battle with cancer.

In February, a Malibu court issued a bench warrant for Redmond after he missed an arraignment for the 2008 drug bust, in which he and his dad were arrested.
