Police net McEnroe son
Kevin McEnroe, the son of tennis legend John McEnroe, was stopped by police on the corner of E. Fourth St. and Avenue A about 11:24 p.m. Tues., July 15, after making an apparent drug deal, police said. His alleged dealer, 22-year-old Niro Meneses, of the Upper West Side, was also arrested and charged.

McEnroe was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was ordered released on his own recognizance.
