Last week Nelly was arrested when his tour bus got tagged at a border patrol checkpoint while driving through Texas. After a drug dog detected something wrong it didnt take long for police to uncover ten pounds of weed, a gun and about .64 ounces of heroin. The blame got put on one of Nelly’s entourage members and he was arrested. Nelly and crew claimed they had no idea that he had brought those items on the bus.
“It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning, October 11th. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials in Sierra Blanca, Texas did not press charges against anyone other than that individual.” (Miss Info TV)

Rapper Nelly was detained last night in Texas while police officers searched his tour bus — and found HEROIN in addition to a loaded gun … and MASSIVE amounts of weed … law enforcement sources tell TMZ. According to law enforcement sources, Nelly’s bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca — and a police canine detected the presence of drugs. We’re told cops pulled the bus over — and after performing a search, they found 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over TEN POUNDS of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag (an amount roughly the size of a large bed pillow). Cops also say they found a loaded .45 caliber pistol. (TMZ)
