11Son of Reverend Run Arrested for Drug Possession

Jojo Simmons of Run's House Arrested for Drug Possession

Jojo Simmons, “star” of the MTV reality TV show Run’s House and son of Joseph Simmons– who puts the “Run” in Run DMC– was arrested Saturday and charged with drug possession and one count of resisting arrest.

Jojo Simmons, 19, was released on his own recognizance after being charged with two counts of possession of marijuana and a count of resisting arrest, officials said.

Police had initially slapped Simmons with attempted reckless endangerment, a felony charge, but a Manhattan judge Saturday gave the aspiring rapper a lighter rap.

Police said the hip-hop heir was behind the wheel of his BMW, which has “JoJo” embroidered on the head rests, rolling a joint when narcs knocked on his window Friday.

I don’t know what’s dumber– the fact that he sat in his car and rolled a joint in plain sight of whomever might happen to walk by, or the fact that he has “Jojo” embroidered on his headrests. Other sites are reporting that the attempted reckless endangerment charge mentioned above was added when he tried to flee, but slammed into two parked cars and was quickly apprehended.

His sister, Vanessa Simmons, responded to the arrest on Twitter, saying “As humans, we all make mistakes … they make up your life lessons and experiences … Jojo is ok, he just made a oops …”
Oh, to be rich and the son of someone famous! You get to learn so many valuable life lessons with so few consequences attached.
For my part, I am going to spend the rest of the day trying to process the unbelievable revelation that the son of a famous rapper smokes pot. Shocking.
