Nelly Detained After Police Found Heroin and More on His Tour Bus
Nelly just found out the hard way that you don’t mess with Texas—at least where drugs are concerned. The rapper was busted last night in an area notorious for nabbing celebs.
A search of Nelly’s tour bus at a West Texas border checkpoint revealed a loaded .45 caliber pistol, 36 packets of heroin and a large duffel bag that contained 10 pounds of marijuana. Nelly and five others in his party were arrested and released. One member of Nelly’s entourage, Brian Keith Jones, reportedly admitted that the illegal items were his and was then arrested.
Maybe it’s time for musicians who enjoy a little drugs now and then to route their tours around Sierra Blanca, Texas, since a number of famous names have been busted here, including Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and Willie Nelson. Of course, Nelson’s been arrested practically everywhere, but that’s another story.
Calls from the press to Nelly’s reps have not been returned.
The millionaire rapper was just seen partying in Vegas over the weekend with his long time “secret” girlfriend, singer Ashanti. The two were spotted cuddled up at Haze nightclub right before Nelly took the stage to perform a couple of his old school hits.
Nelly might need to cut back on the partying for a while. Story still developing.
