Jo Jo Simmons, son of the venerable Rev. Run of "Run's House" TV series, was arrested last week for possession of medical marijuana, damage to property and resisting arrest. It wasn't so much the weed that earned him a future spot on The Smoking Gun's mugshot page -- it was the resisting arrest part.

New York cops routinely look the other way when a person with celebrity status is caught with a little weed. It isn't worth the paperwork to haul them in. Plus, celebs break the cops off something proper, and they tend to have that high quality sticky that the cops like.

According to the police report, Jo Jo crashed into two cars while trying to evade cops who approached his truck on Wadsworth Ave in Washington Heights as he was lighting up inside. Apparently, Jo Jo had just scored -- I mean purchased -- his weed which he uses for medicinal purposes just like every other rapper does.

Why don't they just legalize weed and allow only potheads over age 21 to purchase it? The president smokes weed so it can't be all that bad. Police resources shouldn't be tied up chasing down every weed smoker in a city where potheads outnumber the rats.

Hold your head up Rev. Run! Your son's arrest will provide a big boost to your ratings. Especially if the MTV cameras were rolling as the cops put the smack down on Jo Jo.

    If it were "medical weed" he would not have hit two parked cars. No reason to run from the law if you have a Rx.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Hold up - Diamond and Scrappy was getting their Chris and Rihanna on?

    NOW THIS IS NEWS WORTHY!

    Who Won?

  • sexieblacc

    LMFAO! I'm with READTHEBLOG who wonnnnnn!

  • carmelita79

    there is no medical marijuana in washington heights so kill that noise. JOJO is a fool. buying weed and then sitting there and rolling the joint up.

    and, the president SMOKED weed and GWB was an alcoholic whats the point?

  • flyqtnva

    He a@@ lucky they didnt shoot him, when he backed into the first car...that being said why would his dad be mad when he promoted smoking in his raps.

  • Daisy

    Now I heard rumors of a Scrappy and Diamond fight so I will wait to see what Sandras version of the story is if she post anything today.

    @RTB..LOL

  • flyqtnva

  • iscream

    Sandra please post the names of the NYPD that overlook celeb's with weed. I'm sure Lil Wayne would love their number.

    Charles you need more people. I just don't buy that someone else besides Sandra actually cares enough to talk about those -D listers.

    Off to do a google search. I just can't believe it.

  • KaraZ

    He's an over indulged, over privileged idiotic fock up, I hope he gets the appropriate sentence.

  • flyqtnva

  • mizzdallas

    I just saw the pics over @ mediafakeout dot com, and I didnt see a fight, but just sum ghetto azz couple I hopt they procreate the world has enought ghetto azz kids

  • iscream

    Okay, Charles I saw it.. Whatever it may have been. The pics were from her Birthday Party so I think that's another made up story by Fred.

    @ Topic JoJo is not cute to me at all. His teeth seem too big for his mouth. Even in this pic with his mouth closed it looks like a struggle.

  • Daisy

    Ok so in other words based on the pics yall saw they did not pull a chris and rihanna?..lol That is good to know

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    Weed is the gateway drug...it'll be cocaine before long, if not already. Then he'll be caught with an excessive amount, & get six months jail time then he will resort to smoking crack until he gets back on his feet and that will be the end of it - another brother lost in the sauce.

  • Krysi J

    Its really not the serious.........some people smoke weed for years, and years and never even think about touching another drug. People who take those type of risks are addicts...its makes no sense to want to be HIGH all the time at ALL costs. Weed should be high enough!! Especially wit krypt, dro, and dat purp who the hell wants to get higher than that!!! I would rather find out what went down between Scrap and Diamond, talk shyt about a dude who hasn't done anything anyone else hasn't at least tried once.

  • candycane

    It's cool JoJo it was just weed. I ain't mad. It's not like you were snorting coke, shooting up, poppin pills, drunk driving.

    Just be more careful boo. Now trying to drive off......... yeah that's the weed. WHERE THE PHUCK WAS YOU GOIN!!! with plates that say JoJo. Straight smoker move. You'll be ok though.

    I dont understand why people say that. Not that I should be proud, but..I'm 37 and have been smoking weed since I was 15 and have NEVER used any other drugs. My cousin used to sniff crank, had some high school friends that smoked crack in their cigarettes, but me weed is jussst fine. Although the crank cousin and crack friends no longer smoke weed. I still do though, just cant kick it.

  • Kat

    i just can't figure out why he almost killed himself to get away for some weed?? backing into cars AND pulling into cars.....smh...come on jo jo!

    We are >>>>>>here<<<<<<<. Whoever came up wit dat gateway shyt iz ah damn lie, people do that other shyt cuz they want too, it has nothing to do wit weed. Anybody who dares to experiment wit shyt like crack, cocaine, and Ecstacy, sizzurp...are addicts straight up, you would not fukk wit dat if you cared about the damage it did. Who da hell wants to be strung out??? I will never understand why we still have crackheads at allllll??!??? That totally baffles me.

    It wasn't about him, it was about his family and the image that they uphold...he knew this would taint it a bit. Seriously though Jo Jo, it just lets us know that yall don't live in a perfect world, and you are just as normal as anyone else....I wouldn't be surprised if the Rev smoked back in the day.
