Jackie Chan’s Son Jaycee Charged With Drug Crime


Jaycee Chan, son of kung fu movie star Jackie Chan, has been formally charged with a drugs offence, according to a statement by China’s state prosecutor, which means he is almost certain to face trial.
The younger Chan, a 32-year-old actor and singer, was arrested in Beijing this year after testing positive for marijuana, with police saying they found 100 grams of the drug at his home.
Jaycee Chan was not available for comment. In August, his father offered the public a “deep bow of apology” for his son’s arrest.
In a brief statement on its official microblog, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate said it had begun legal proceedings against him for “the crime of sheltering others to take drugs”. It did not elabourate.
President Xi Jinping said in June that China would “harshly crack down” on narcotics, state media reported.
