Jackie Chan’s son has officially been put under arrest on drug charges. So, the arrest of Jaycee Chan has been approved. The son of the famous actor was placed under arrest linked to the drug charges that were filed against him last month.
Jaycee Chan was initially arrested in Beijing after being tested positive for marijuana. The cops claimed back then that they found no less than 100 grams of the drug in his home. Now, he has formally been arrested. The star is also suspected of allowing other people to consume the drug.
Unfortunately for Jaycee Chan, if he will be found guilty in this case, he can be jailed for about three years. The 31 year old star was actually involved in a huge scandal when he was arrested on August 14. Jaycee Chan was arrested alongside Taiwanese movie star Ko Kai. Both actors were tested positive and they both admitted to have used the drug.
Even though the case dates back to a month ago, the official arrest took place only now, as in China the cops need an approval from prosecutors to arrest a suspect. During the formal arrest, the investigation still continues.
Ko Kai already spent 14 days in administrative detention. At the end of his sentence, Ko publicly apologized for using the drug. Maybe, Jaycee will do the same, as actually Jackie Chan is an anti-drug ambassador in China. Jackie Chan as already apologized for his son and claimed to be extremely embarrassed. Moreover, Chan said that he will work with his son to help his recovery.
“Regarding this issue with my son Jaycee, I feel very angry and very shocked. As a public figure, I’m very ashamed. As a father, I’m heartbroken,” Jackie Chan’s statement said in August. “I hope all young people will learn a lesson from Jaycee and stay far from the harm of drugs,” Chan went on to add. “I say to Jaycee that you have to accept the consequences when you do something wrong. As your father, I’m going to face the road together with you,” the famous actor concluded.
Jaycee Chan is an actor, too. He appeared in no less than 20 movies until now, most of them being Hong Kong and Chinese productions.
