JoJo Simmons, son of the legendary Rev. Run and star of “Run’s House,” was arrested on Friday for weed possession.

According to TMZ, the Run-DMC frontman’s 19-year-old son was allegedly buying marijuana and rolling a joint while sitting in a car in New York City. He reportedly tried to get away by reversing his vehicle and nearly backed into a police officer’s car.

The younger Simmons, born Joseph Simmons Jr., was booked for resisting arrest, attempted reckless endangerment, and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

“I’m alright everybody!” JoJo wrote on his Twitter page on Saturday evening.

Earlier in the day, his sisters Angela and Vanessa Simmons were throwing out the first pitch at the Dodgers game in Los Angeles.

“As humans we all make mistakes. They make up your life lessons and experiences,” his eldest sister Vanessa tweeted. “JoJo is ok, he just made a[n] oops.”

The sixth season of MTV’s “Run’s House” is scheduled to premiere this summer.
