NEW YORK – It will take more than a pot bust to bring down Kimora Lee Simmons (search).
The smiling spouse of rap mogul Russell Simmons (search) mugged for the mug-shot camera in a police photo — striking a sassy pose in a T-shirt and hip-hugger jeans after being busted on drug and careless-driving charges.
Simmons, whose other recent on-film appearance is in a nearly nude Times Square clothing billboard, was arrested early Monday outside her palatial New Jersey estate after she was spotted driving erratically and ignored a patrol car's flashing lights for nearly two miles.
Detective Tim Gerity said cops first saw her driving carelessly near the Saddle River police station — then followed her and found marijuana in her open purse on the front seat of her Mercedes.
Simmons, who was traveling with an unidentified man, was in the driveway waiting for a gate — emblazoned with a large "S" — to open when police nabbed her.
Simmons, 29, was charged with eluding a police officer, possessing marijuana, careless driving and operating a vehicle while possessing a controlled substance.
Fans who want to see more of Simmons can catch almost all of her in a nude, but strategically masked billboard that has been hanging high above Times Square for a week.
Simmons runs the couple's Baby Phat (search) clothing line.
Reports quoting sources close to Simmons said she did not pull over earlier because there was no shoulder on either road.
"There is no shoulder," Gerity said. "But there are several areas that would provide a safe haven for both the officers and the operator of the vehicle."
