The son of tennis champ John McEnroe and actress Tatum O’Neal was arrested on Tuesday night after police busted him in the middle of a drug deal in New York.
Kevin McEnroe, 27, had cocaine, painkillers, and morphine pills on his person.
Police stopped Kevin McEnroe, 27, on the corner of East 4th Street and Avenue A at around 11:30 p.m. buying drugs from 22-year-old Niro Meneses.
McEnroe was in possession of six bags of cocaine, 20 oxy pills, 10 morphine pills and one anxiety pill.
Kevin was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and he is pending an arraignment.
His mother, Tatum O’Neal, allegedly called the 9th Precinct station after his arrest. O’Neal herself has admitted to battling drug addition since the age of 14.
Tatum and John McEnroe were divorced in 1994 and he was awarded custody of the kids when she relapsed on heroin.
In 2008, Tatum was arrested on the Lower East Side trying to buy crack cocaine. At the time, she told a judge she planned to kick drugs for good. She said, “I’m going back to my meetings and back to my life”.
McEnroe remarried to singer Patty Smyth and the couple have two other children together.
Kevin allegedly lives in Brooklyn and once worked as a bartender at the now-closed bar Broadway East.
