Kimora Lee Simmons Arrested

Kimora Lee Simmons, wife of mogul Russell Simmons was arrested in New Jersey and charged with a series of drug and traffic violations, after her vehicle was stopped and marijuana was allegedly found in the vehicle on Sunday (July 25).

According to reports, Kimora was driving near her home in Saddle Brook, New Jersey when officers attempted to pull her over. Police allege Kimora made no attempt to stop and did not pull over until she reached her home.

Kimora was charged with eluding a police officer, possessing marijuana, careless driving, operating a vehicle while possessing a controlled substance, tail-gating and having a taillight out. She and her clique charge that she was a victim of excessive force as well, as she claims to have bruises on her wrists.

Hip-Hop tycoon Russell Simmons, Kimora’s spouse, said the arrest and subsequent “abuse” shocked him. Simmons said that his wife may have also been the victim of racial profiling.

“When my wife noticed the police were behind her, she put on her hazard lights and drove a short distance because there was no shoulder on the road,” Russell told AllHipHop.com. “She drove to her home where the entire illegal search and abuse was filmed by our home security cameras. The first question they asked was ‘is Russell home?’”

Maybe they just wanted a Rush Card?.

All jokes aside, innocent until proven guilty. It will be interesting to see how far the NJPD wind up taking this one.
