Jackie Chan's Son Jaycee Chan Arrested in Massive Chinese Celebrity Drug Bust
Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan is in some hot water right now. The 31-year-old actor tested positive for marijuana and was promptly arrested in Beijing as a part of China’s crackdown on celebrity drug offenders.
Jaycee, along with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko were detained following a raid on Thursday, Aug. 14, in which police uncovered more than 100 grams of marijuana in Chan’s apartment.
CNN reports that Jaycee is also accused of “hosting others to take drugs,” and could face up to three years in jail. The China Daily (via CNN) adds that recently there have been 7,000 arrests in Beijing for drug use, which is a 72 percent increase from last year.
Other celebrities arrested include film star Zhang Mo and singer Li Daimo. Jackie Chan, the star of hit films Rush Hour and Shanghai Knights, has yet to comment on his son’s arrest.
