Jaycee Chan, son of the martial arts movie star Jackie Chan has been arrested in Beijing for possession and use of drugs.

Beijing police said they had found over three-and-a-half ounces of the drug at 32-year-old Jaycee Chan's house in Beijing and that he had also tested positive for the drug.

The officers also stated that Jaycee had allowed others to take the drug while inside of his house.  After the findings during the search the actor and singer was placed under arrest, alongside his friend 23-year-old Taiwanese film star Kai Ko.

A third man, named only as Mr. Song, was arrested for dealing the drugs found at Mr. Chan's house.

News of his son's arrest could become complicated for Jackie Chan, who signed up five years ago to be a "Narcotics Control Ambassador" of the Chinese Police Force.  He has also stated on multiple occasions that he supports the Communist party that presides over China.

A growing list of celebrities have been recently targeted for drugs by the Chinese police, including several Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwanese actors.

A long list of Chinese entertainment agencies signed an agreement on August 13 to blacklist any drug-using artists, which could severely impact Jaycee's career in future feature films from China.

According to Shanghai Entertainment News, Jackie Chan had previously counseled his son not to spend time with Kai Ko. At one point, Ko even publicly promised he would not lead the younger Chan off track any further.

In April 2011, Jackie Chan said he would donate his entire fortune to charity and that his son would have to make his own way in life. "If he is capable, he can make his own money. If he is not, then he will just be wasting my money," he said.

Jackie Chan, the son of a pre-war opium smuggler, has sometimes distanced himself from his son in the past.  He stated while overseas in the U.K. to promote his new action film "Chinese Zodiac," that he was trying to adapt to a more responsible form of parenting.

 

Jaycee Chan, 31, has appeared in some 20 movies including "Invisible Target" and "The Sun Also Rises." Brought up in Los Angeles.

Kai Ko won the award for the best new actor at the 48th Golden Horse Awards in the Taiwanese city of Hsinchu in 2011, and the 12th Chinese Film Media Awards in 2013 for his role in the movie "You are the Apple of my Eye."
