Kungfu superstar Jackie Chan's 32-year-old son Jaycee Chan was prosecuted for allegedly providing a venue for drug users.

 

The prosecution of Jaycee, an actor and singer, has come three months after he was formally arrested on suspicion of accommodating drug users. He was arrested along with Ko Chen-tung, 23, a Taiwanese movie star also known as Kai Ko.

 

Beijing police detained many people for drug offences, including Jaycee and Chen-tung on August 14. The duo were tested positive for marijuana and admitted to taking the drug.

 

The arrests were made following complaints from local residents.

 

Police had also seized more than 100 grams of marijuana from Jaycee's residence, state-run Xinhua news agency reported today.

 

Chen-tung was released on August 29 after 14 days of administrative detention.

 

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

 

Born to Jackie Chan and his wife, a Taiwanese actress Lin Feng-Jiao, Jaycee was raised in Los Angeles. He did not pursue studies after two semesters and has a penchant for luxury cars.

 

Drug abuse among Chinese celebrities has become a hot topic as a number of TV and film stars have been arrested in this connection.

 

 

Jackie, an influential member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, a legislative body, was appointed as goodwill Ambassador for the China National Anti-Drug Committee in 2009 to promote anti-drug education in the country.
