Nelly Arrested In Tennessee
St. Louis rapper Nelly was arrested in Tennessee recently when illegal drugs and weapons were found on his tour bus.
TMZ reported the Lunatics-founder's tour bus was pulled over by a state trooper for something pretty trivial (not having a required Dept. of Transportation sticker). After the officer boarded the bus, he smelled marijuana, which gave him probable cause to search the vehicle. The police found a baggie containing crystal rocks that tested positive for meth and a small amount of weed in the sleeper area. Reportedly, they also found a "stash of guns" including a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol, and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson.
Nelly (who's government name is Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr.) received a few charges including possession of meth, which is a felony, misdemeanor marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
