Jaycee the poor little rich boy

All his life, Jaycee, son of superstar Jackie Chan, has had to worry about how his actions will affect his dad's reputation

In Chinese police video footage of a recent night in Beijing, a man, whose face is pixelated and who is sitting in a small office, nods as he is shown a urine sample.

"I'm sorry," he says, after he is informed of his positive test result for marijuana.

Later in the video, an anti-narcotics officer says of the man: "The first time I saw him, to tell the truth, I could see he was cultured. From his eyes, I could feel he was more regretful."

It is a classic Jaycee Chan moment. Wherever the actor finds himself, it seems that he always has to play the part of action superstar Jackie Chan's well-brought-up son.
