Nelly, the “Hot In Herre” rapper, was detained Wednesday night after police searched his tour bus and found over 10 pounds of marijuana, 36 small bags of heroin and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
Nelly’s bus was pulled over at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, where a slew of other celebrities have also been arrested for drugs— including Fiona Apple’s arrest and incarceration less than one month ago.
When the police officers found the overwhelming amount illegal substances, all seven passengers on the bus were detained, including the “Country Grammar” star.
Brian Keith Jones, a passenger on the bus, later admitted that all of the drugs and the gun were his. Nelly and the other five individuals were all released.
The rapper is scheduled to perform in Austin, Texas next month with Flo Rida and Enrique Iglesias for the COTA Austin Fan Fest.
