Griffin O'Neal is in legal trouble again. The 47-year-old son of actor Ryan O'Neal was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic battery.

It happened on New Year's Eve at his home in suburban San Diego.

A sheriff's department spokeswoman said someone in the family called 911 to report a drinking-related disturbance. Through witnesses, deputies determined O'Neal was being aggressive toward his wife.

He's in jail on $10,000 bail. Meantime, he's set to be sentenced next week in a drug-related DUI case that injured a motorist.
