The son of Hollywood actor Jackie Chan has been arrested on drug-related charges, Chinese state media stated.

Jackie Chan?s on, actor Jaycee Chan, 31, and Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, 23, were detained last Thursday, Beijing police said in a statement on their official microblog.

Police said both men tested positive for marijuana, with more than 100 grams of the drug found at Mr Chan?s home.

Their arrest comes amid an ongoing crackdown on drugs which has already netted several celebrity figures.

Mr Chan, whose father Jackie was named an official ?Narcotics Control Ambassador? by Chinese police in 2009, had been put under ?criminal detention? for the suspected crime of ?providing a shelter for others to abuse drugs?, police said.

If convicted, he faces a maximum prison term of three years.

Mr Chan and his father have not yet commented on the arrest.
