Kevin McEnroe has gotten himself into a bit of trouble.

The 27-year-old son of tennis pro John McEnroe and Academy Award-winning actress Tatum O'Neal has been charged with criminal possession of drugs with the intent of selling them in Manhattan, according to reports. He didn't enter a plea during the arraignment today and wasn't required to. Prosecutors wanted bail to be set at $5,000, but McEnroe was released on his own recognizance into the care of his uncle, who was in court.

McEnroe was first arrested on Tuesday night after police saw him involved in what looked to be a drug transaction on a street corner in East Village.

He was carrying six clear plastic bags of what was believed to be cocaine, a Clorazepate anxiety pill, 20 Oxycodone pain-killing pills, 10 morphine pills and 10 orange pills which were not identified, New York police Sgt. Jessica McRorie told CNN.

McEnroe is scheduled to appear in court on October 16.

Kevin's parents, John McEnroe and O'Neal—who has been open about her battle with drug addiction—officially divorced in 1994.
