Things got a little “too hot” for Nelly yesterday morning when his tour bus was raided by police at a Texas checkpoint. The same checkpoint and border patrol in Sierra Blanca where stars like Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and most recently Fiona Apple have been busted with drugs.
A police canine sniffed out the drugs on Nelly’s bus, and that is when police came in and searched all over the bus. They found 36 small bags of heroin, over 10 pounds of weed and a loaded .45 caliber pistol. Nelly was questioned, but he was not arrested because someone else on the bus admitted that everything was his and was arrested at the scene.
Nelly claims that he had no idea that 10 pounds of weed was on his tour bus,
“It is my understanding a member of my staff made and unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board.” Nelly told TMZ
Anyone else buying it? I’m not. It seems like it would be hard to miss someone trying to bring on 10 pounds of weed to a bus. He basically smuggled a small baby onto the tour bus without anyone knowing. Seems a little fishy to me! But, then again…would Nelly really be that stupid to go through that checkpoint with all those drugs? I wouldn’t even go through that checkpoint with NyQuil in my car.
