Jackie Chan's Son Facing Up to Three Years in Jail for Drug Charges

Read the movie star's statement

Kaitlin Thomas

Jaycee Chan, the son of actor Jackie Chan, has been indicted on drug charges in China, the Associated Press reports.

The singer/actor is being charged with providing a venue for others to use drugs. If convicted, he could face up to three years in prison.

Chan was detained in August alongside Taiwanese actor Kai Ko after police found 100 grams of marijuana in Chan's Beijing home. Both tested positive for marijuana and admitted to using the drug.

This is probably all very awkward for his famous father, who was named an anti-drug ambassador by Beijing in 2009. At the time of his son's arrest, Chan released a statement on his website .

"Regarding this issue with my son Jaycee, I feel very angry and very shocked," he wrote. "As a public figure, I'm very ashamed. As a father, I'm heartbroken.

"I would like to take this opportunity to say to Jaycee: you've done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences," he continued. "I'm your dad and I'll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together. I should also take some of the responsibility because as his dad, I didn't teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society."

Meanwhile, in Colorado, everyone is wondering WTH the big deal is.
