Kevin McEnroe, the son of former tennis player John McEnroe and actress Tatum O'Neal, was arrested on Tuesday in New York for reportedly making a drug deal. The 28-year-old was arrested in the East Village along with the alleged dealer and was found in possession of a number of different substances.

Tennis great John McEnroe's son with actress Tatum O'neal was arrested on Tuesday following a busted drug deal.

Sources vary on the kinds of drugs Kevin was carrying but agree he was in possession of six bags of cocaine. The NY Daily News reports, in addition to six clear envelopes of cocaine, Kevin was reportedly found with 20 painkillers, 10 morphine tablets and an anxiety pill. Whilst sources speaking to ABC News claim Kevin was carrying a muscle relaxant, 20 white oxycodone (a pain-killer frequently used in palliative care) pills and 10 unidentified orange pills.

The arrest occurred on Tuesday evening at around 11.24pm. It appears Kevin was attempting to purchase the drugs when he was arrested as sources, speaking to NY Daily News, report the alleged drug dealer Niro Meneses was also arrested. Meneses was carrying a quantity of cocaine in 13 clear envelopes and 3 vials when he was apprehended.

Kevin, after being taken into custody and attending a hearing at Manhattan Criminal Court, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance. 22-year-old Meneses was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. 

This is not the first time a member of John McEnroe's family has been arrested and linked to drugs. McEnroe's ex-wife and Kevin's mother, actress Tatum O'Neal, was arrested in New York in 2008 when police discovered her buying crack cocaine. As ABC News reports, like her son, O'Neal was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance but did not face jail time and instead agreed to visit a drug rehabilitation centre two days a week.
