'Angry' Jackie Chan 'ashamed' about son Jaycee's drug arrest
Jackie Chan has expressed his anger and shame over his son's recent arrest on drug-related charges, in Beijing.
The 60-year-old Hong Kong actor revealed on his official account on Chinese microblogging site Sina Weib that he is "very angry and shocked" to hear of his 31-year-old son Jaycee's arrest on drug-related charges, the BBC reported.
Chan, who was named an official 'Narcotics Control Ambassador' by Chinese police in 2009, further said that he is sad and ashamed of his son, and added that his wife is "heartbroken".
He also apologized on behalf of his son, who was found by Beijing police with more than 100 grams of marijuana at his home, and admitted that he hopes young people would learn from Jaycee's lesson and avoid drugs.
Beijing police said that Jaycee has been put under "criminal detention" for the suspected crime of "providing a shelter for others to abuse drugs". He and Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, were detained after testing positive for marijuana.
