Jaycee Chan, the son of legendary Kung Fu star Jackie Chan, has been jailed for six months for a drug offence following a drug use crackdown in China which several celebrities have been arrested.

The 32-year old pleaded guilty to the charges today,  Friday January 9, 2014 in Beijing’s Dongcheng District Court to “hosting others to use drugs”.

He said, “I violated the law. I deserve to be punished. When I return to society, I won’t do it again,”

He was arrested in August 2014 after Police raided his home and discovered more than 100g of marijuana.

According to reports by BBC News, Chan was also fined 2,000 yuan ($322; £213).

Meanwhile his father who was named an official “Narcotics Control Ambassador” by Chinese police in 2009, has said he feels  “ashamed” and “sad” over his son’s erratic behaviour.
