Tatum O'Neal's son has been arrested for drug possession.

A NYPD spokesperson confirmed to Us Weekly that Kevin McEnroe was arrested Tuesday night around 11:15 p.m. for criminal possession of a controlled substance. Kevin was allegedly caught as he was buying the drugs.

The 27-year-old was caught by cops who saw the drug deal go down. The New York Daily News is reporting that Kevin, Tatum and John's oldest son, was caught on the corner of E. Fourth St. and Avenue A carrying "six glassine envelopes of cocaine, 20 painkillers, 10 morphine pills and one anxiety pill."

This is more concerning as Tatum had struggled with drugs and was arrested for possession back in 2008 as well. She later sought treatment in rehab but reportedly relapsed in 2012.


"Hard day no filter. some days are better than…," Tatum posted Wednesday night on Twitter. She included an emoji of praying hands with a link to a photo on Instagram — but that picture was later removed.

What do you think about Kevin's arrest? Do you think this will be his wake-up call, or do you think he will end up in rehab like his mother, Tatum? Let us know in the comments below!
