Jackie Chan's actor son, Jaycee Chan, was arrested in a Beijing drug bust along with Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, local media reports.

The two stars were among several to be detained on drug-related offenses last week after police say they both tested positive for marijuana and confessed to being under the influence of the drug.

Jaycee faces charges for "providing a shelter for others to use drugs" after police found and removed 100 grams of marijuana from his home.

If convicted, Jaycee could face up to three years in prison.

Jaycee's management company, M'Stones International, apologized on behalf of the star for the "social impact" that was caused after his arrest.

They added that they would "supervise his rehabilitation and help him return to the right path."

The arrests are just the latest in a government crackdown on illegal substances beginning in June, helmed primarily by President Xi Jingping.

Since the massive push to highlight the drug issue, and catch offenders, almost 8,000 citizens have been caught in Beijing alone.

While his famous father hasn't responded directly to the family matter, he did post a message on Facebook showing him performing his legendary martial arts moves and writing, "Fighting through the fog."
