Jackie Chan’s son has become the latest celebrity spawn in recent months to be arrested for drug possession.

Jaycee Chan, 31, was reportedly among several suspects who were arrested during a drug bust in Beijing, China. Reports from Chinese media claim that the son of the legendary actor tested positive for marijuana and confessed to using the drug to police. Investigators later found 100 grams of marijuana and charged him with using his home as a “shelter” for others to do drugs.

Jaycee faces up to three years in prison if convicted on all charges, but it is unlikely he will face jail time due to his lack of a prior criminal record and celebrity status. He has become a movie star in Hong Kong and China in recent years, starring in critically acclaimed films including the 2009 action flick Mulan: Rise of a Warrior.

His father has not publicly commented on his arrest, but has actively campaigned against drug use throughout much of his career. He was even appointed an anti-drug ambassador by China’s National Narcotics Control Commission in 2009.

“There are more and more young people becoming involved with drugs these days...This is very bad. Not only will you harm yourself by taking drugs, you will also harm your family as well,” he said in February 2013. "Because of this, our country is very serious about the fight against drugs at the moment…the responsibility that I carry on my shoulders feels very heavy.”

The sons of actor Robert Downey Jr. and tennis star John McEnroe have also been arrested this summer in separate drug possession incidents. Neither had a prior criminal record beforehand.
