Things aren’t looking too good for Nelly right now. My question is…you were on a tour bus, but exactly what tour were you on bruh?
Nelly was arrested on Saturday night in Tennessee, after cops pulled his tour bus over for not having the required Dept. of Transportation sticker, smelled weed, and it all went downhill from there.
Cops say they found a baggie with crystal rocks that tested positive for meth, a “small amount of weed” and about 100 small Ziplock bags, so they hit Nelly with a felony charge for the meth, a misdemeanor for the weed and a drug paraphernalia charge for the baggies.
Cops also reportedly found a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson. No word whether they were registered (they’ve been known to overlook that,) but someone else on the bus by the name of Brian Jones was hit for possession of a handgun.
Of course Nelly is denying the charges, and his lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, told TMZ:
There were 15 to 20 people who had access to the bus prior to the stop and there were multiple people on the bus when cops searched it. […] Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered.
He also adds it wasn’t meth, but MDMA/Ecstasy (aka Molly) – which I can believe, because TMZ so often reports it as meth and it does indeed end up being the pills.
