Rev. Run’s Son JoJo Slapped on Wrist for Drug Charge

Rev. Run‘s eldest son JoJo Simmons reaped just one of the many benefits of being rich and famous when he received a gentle one-day community service sentence for his recent drug debacle.

On May 8, the 19-year-old was seen purchasing marijuana and rolling a joint inside a car in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. According to reports, Simmons Jr. then tried to avoid arrest by reversing his car and nearly backed into the arresting officer’s car. He was charged with possession, resisting arrest, attempted reckless endangerment and criminal use of drug paraphernalia, but pleaded guilty to a much lesser charge of disorderly conduct.

JoJo, his famous dad and their lawyer Paul Nalven appeared in court Thursday for the sentencing. Run did not comment on his son’s light sentence.
