Regrets Jackie Chan's Son Freed From Jail, Apologises To Public

The son of China movie legend Jackie Chan, has been freed from jailed to began his rehabilitation after he spent month out of his six-month sentence in jail

  • Published:

Jaycee Chan appeared in public for the first time following a six-month jail sentence on drug charges and apologized for his actions.

Speaking softly and wearing a dark-colored suit and collarless shirt, the 32-year-old entertainer told reporters in Beijing he would dedicate his energy toward film and music projects and spend more time with his distraught mother.

Chan was arrested in August after he tested positive for marijuana and police found 100 grams of the drug in his Beijing home. He was formally charged in December with "the crime of sheltering others to take drugs."

The case has been heavily publicized by state media amid a country-wide crackdown on drug use that has netted several other B-list celebrities. State media have reported that Jackie Chan felt ashamed about his son's drug use and hopes he will speak out about its dangers one day.

Chan's saga has captivated the Chinese public partly because his father - named an anti-drug ambassador by China in 2009 - is considered to have political connections in the capital.

The younger Chan said he did not receive preferential treatment in jail, nor did his father attempt to use his influence to lessen his sentence.

He described a contemplative life behind bars consisting of history discussions with a cell mate and reading about Buddhism.

At one point Chan recited a quote from a philosophy book he read while inside. The book, he told reporters, was written by a Taiwanese Buddhist master and entitled "Put it down."
