Well this made my day. Uber-bitch, Kimora Lee Simmons was charged with eluding a police officer, possessing marijuana (under 50 grams), careless driving, operating a vehicle while possessing a controlled substance, tail-gating and having a taillight out. While the marijuana possession is harmless (tip – always have a servant transport your stash in another vehicle), Miu never condones reckless driving. There is no charge for driving under the influence, so it take it that the marijuana did not contribute to the careless driving.
Come to think of it, why was she driving herself anyway? Shouldn’t she have been driven wherever she was going?
Kimora’s attorney, Stacey Richman, said: “We deny any wrongdoing whatsoever” and called the incident “another example of a prominent member of the hip-hop community being made an example of.” Whatever.
Russell Simmons said, “My wife is an excellent driver, and she’s not guilty of any crime. You don’t have to grab my wife and put handcuffs on her. Her wrists are all bruised up.” Um, Russell, that’s what happens when you are arrested. [via NYDN]
