Actor Jackie Chan's son Jaycee Chan has been sentenced to six months in jail by a Chinese court after he pleaded guilty to providing a venue for drug users.

The Dongcheng District People's Court in Beijing says on its microblog account that 32-year-old Jaycee Chan also was ordered to pay 2,000 yuan, or about $320, during Friday's hearing.

Police detained Chan, Taiwanese movie star Ko Kai and several others in August in Chan's Beijing apartment. The official Xinhua News Agency said Chan and Ko tested positive for marijuana, and police seized more than 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of marijuana from Chan's home.

Xinhua says the maximum sentence for the charge was three years in prison.

Chinese authorities named actor Jackie Chan an anti-drug ambassador in 2009.
