Ryan O'Neal's drug possession charges dropped

LOS ANGELES O'Neal has successfully completed an 18-month drug diversion program.

The 69-year-old actor was arrested in 2008 at his /*Malibu*/ home.

Deputies had been conducting a compliance check on O'Neal's 25-year-old son Redmond, who was on probation in another drug-related case.

Redmond O'Neal is now undergoing court-ordered drug rehabilitation in a sober living facility and is due back in court next Thursday for a progress report hearing.
