The son of actress Tatum O'Neal and former tennis great John McEnroe has been charged with drug possession.

Authorities say Kevin McEnroe and another man were arrested Tuesday night during "a narcotics transaction" in New York's East Village.

McEnroe didn't enter a plea at his arraignment Wednesday and was released on his own recognizance.

Police say the 27-year-old McEnroe was in possession of cocaine and prescription medication. He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

McEnroe's lawyer tells the Wall Street Journal that there was "nothing remarkable" about the amount of drugs found on her client. She declined further comment.

Police also arrested Niro Meneses on criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately known.
