Tennis Legend’s Son Arrested for Possession of Cocaine, Painkillers, Morphine Pills
Kevin McEnroe was stopped by cops in New York on Tuesday shortly before 11.30pm after officers became suspicious a potential drug deal was taking police.
Police say the 27-year-old was stopped in Manhattan’s East Village and was found carrying six small envelopes of cocaine, 20 painkillers, 10 morphine pills and one anxiety pill.
McEnroe, the eldest of the former tennis player’s five children, has been charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Police also arrested his alleged drug dealer, identified as Niro Meneses, who they say was carrying 13 envelopes of cocaine and three vials of drugs.
Meneses, 22, of the Upper West Side, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
Former barman Kevin, of Gowanus, Brooklyn, is the son of McEnroe and his ex-wife actress Tatum O’Neal.
His mother is reported to have called the police station where her son was being detained.
The Oscar winner is no stranger to drugs herself after being arrested six years ago when she was caught buy crack cocaine in New York.
She pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and vowed to stay away from drugs.
“I’m going back to my meetings and back to my life,” O’Neal said at the time.
She had battled drug addiction since the age of 14.
The tennis player, once nicknamed Super Brat over his furious outbursts on court, took full custody of their three children in 1995, as O’Neal battled heroin addiction.
The 55-year-old multi millionaire, now a commentator for the BBC during Wimbledon, has two more children from his second marriage to singer Patty Smyth.”
