Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee released from jail
Jaycee Chan, the son of actor Jackie Chan, was released from jail in China on Friday after serving a six-month sentence on drugs charges, state media said.
The official Xinhua news agency said he was let out in the early hours of the morning having completed his sentence, taking into account time already served since he was put in detention in August.
The younger Chan was formally charged in December with “the crime of sheltering others to take drugs” after testing positive for marijuana, with police saying they found 100 grams of the drug at his home. He faced a maximum prison sentence of three years.
He is expected to hold a news conference in Beijing on Saturday.
