Here's one Hilfiger who could be modeling pinstripes.

Richard Hilfiger, the 20-year-old wannabe-rapper son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, was busted last weekend in Hollywood for allegedly cruising around with some weed with the intention to sell.

Los Angeles Sheriff's Sgt. Shawn Ruda tells E! News that Hilfiger, whose stage name is Rich Hil, was pulled over while driving along Sunset Boulevard early Sunday. Officers searched his vehicle and turned up a hefty stash of the green stuff.

The amount was enough for the tattooed heir to the Hilfiger throne be taken into custody and booked on a felony count of possession of marijuana for sale.

After a night in the clink, he was released on Monday on $20,000 bail.

The younger Hilfiger, an aspiring hip-hop arist who's worked with the likes of the new Mr. Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, and collaborated with Kid Cudi on a recent track, confirmed the arrest via Twitter.

"Spent the night in jail," he tweeted.

No doubt the arrest will boost his cred with Malibu's Most Wanted.
