Redmond O'Neal dodged a bullet in his probation case, but was fitted with an ankle monitor and told that he's going to prison for six YEARS if he effs up again.

The 26-year-old's probation was revoked in September after he allegedly snuck out of rehab, ordered drugs on a payphone and was later arrested with heroin.

A judge sent him back to the treatment facility instead of jail, with the stern warning that this is his final shot, and a state-of-the-art GPS monitoring bracelet.

This thing is no joke. According to law enforcement, the device features real-time cameras that take a snapshot of Redmond's whereabouts every five minutes.

If he steps outside his assigned area, an alarm goes off.

Redmond O'Neal's long history battling drugs is well documented. He pleaded no contest to drug and weapons charges in August and earned a YEAR in rehab.

As we said earlier, if Redmond screws up again, he faces up to six years in prison. With his track record, we'd put the odds of a screw-up around 50/50.

Redmond O'Neal is in major trouble with the law. Again.

The 26-year old son of Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett was arrested for heroin possession yesterday morning after police pulled him over in Santa Monica for running a red light. Redmond was booked for the traffic infraction, along with violating felony drug probation and possession of a controlled substance.

O'Neal has been busted for drug possession on numerous occasions. He posed for multiple mug shots in 2009 and was last taken into custody in January 2010. This poor guy makes DMX look like Princess Di.

"It's a really sad situation," an O'Neal family friend told Us Weekly. "To say Ryan is disappointed is an understatement. The entire family is obviously very distressed about this."

Because Redmond was on felony probation, he could, and should, be sent back to jail.
