Jackie Chan’s son apologises for involvement in drug case

Bishkek (AKIpress) - chan Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan, arrested in China on drug-related charges, has apologised for his involvement in the drug abuse case.

Jaycee, 32, a movie and television actor also known as Fang Zuming, was arrested for housing others to take drugs, along with Ko Chen-tung, 23, a movie star from Taiwan also known as Kai Ko, Beijing police confirmed in a statement.

Police said they have confiscated more than 100 grams of marijuana from Jaycee’s residence, Xinhua reports.

Jaycee is facing criminal charges for using drugs as well as allowing others to use narcotics in his home state. He is under criminal detention for further probing, police said.

The arrests took place in Beijing’s Dongcheng district on Thursday after the police received reports from local residents, another official daily Global Times reported.

According to the police statement, Jaycee and Ko confessed to taking drugs.

According to Chinese law, those involved in providing locations for others to take drugs face sentences of up to three year in prison. The crime of transporting, manufacturing or trafficking drugs can be the death penalty.
