BEIJING: Action star Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan has been formally arrested, announced Chinese authorities on Wednesday (Sept 17).
Investigations are ongoing, reported Chinese media. Chan has been charged with providing a venue for drug use, a criminal charge which carries a penalty of up to three years in prison.
Jaycee Chan has been in police custody for over 31 days now. Taiwan actor Kai Ko, who was detained alongside Chan on Aug 14 and charged with drug consumption (a civil charge), was released at midnight on Aug 28.
Ko has reportedly decided to go back to school following his release, after holding tearful media conferences in China and Taiwan to apologise for his actions.
