FarrahfawcettFarrah Fawcett was asleep upstairs when the cops conducted a probation search at Ryan O’Neal‘s Malibu home Wednesday.

Wow. She must be a really heavy sleeper.

The resulting search uncovered methamphetamine, causing the arrest of Ryan O’Neal and his son Redmond O’Neal on suspicion of narcotics possession.

A source close to the family tells “Entertainment Tonight” exclusively that Farrah Fawcett was asleep in an upstairs bedroom while Redmond was arrested.

His dad was also arrested after additional methamphetamine was allegedly found in the elder O’Neal’s bedroom.

“The drugs found in Ryan’s bedroom were not his," the source tells "ET." 

"Ryan had confiscated those drugs from Redmond 2 or 3 months earlier and was only keeping them away from his son. He was being a responsible father.”

Confiscation. Do you buy that? 

Why not throw them away? Why keep them?
