Jaycee Chan, also known as Fang Zuming, was detained by Beijing police together with his friend, 23-year-old Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko Chen-tung, the Beijing News and Beijing Times newspapers reported on Monday

It was not clear when the two were detained, but neither has posted anything on their frequently updated Weibo social media accounts since last Tuesday.

Chan and Ko join a growing list of celebrities, including mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwanese actors, who have been nabbed in Beijing's widening campaign targeting celebrity drug abuse in the last two years. The duo could face potential criminal charges, the Beijing News said. 

The question is, will his 60-year-old martial artist old man be able to fight these charges?
