Mystery Surrounds Drug Bust On Nelly’s Tour Bus
Whoa, Nelly. If what you’re saying is true and you indeed had no idea your tour bus was laden with heroin and marijuana (revealed to police today) we’re going to need you to keep a closer eye on your affairs.
Earlier today law enforcement officials in Sierra Blanca, TX found 36 baggies of heroin, more than 10 pounds of weed and a loaded .45 caliber pistol on Nelly’s tour bus. A passenger on the bus by the name of Brian Keith Jones was arrested after admitting to possessing the drugs and weapon (Nelly was also taken in and later released).
“It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning,” Nelly told TMZ tonight in a statement. “Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual.”
According to MTV News, the Sierra Blanca checkpoint is quite the hot spot when it comes to celebrities and drug busts. Willie Nelson, Armie Hammer, Snoop Dogg and Fiona Apple have also been arrested there for illegal substance possession.
