Nelly Detained After Heroin, Marijuana and Loaded Gun Found on Tour Bus
Another celebrity drug bust at a West Texas border checkpoint.
According to the Associated Press, authorities report they found drugs and a loaded gun on Nelly's tour bus on Wednesday night near Sierra Blanca, Texas.
During an initial search of the 37-year-old rapper's bus, Hudspeth County sheriff's officials said they found small amounts of heroin, marijuana and a loaded gun. But on a second search, they found approximately 10 pounds of marijuana in a duffel bag.
One passenger was arrested after admitting the drugs and gun belonged to him. "Hot in Here" singer Nelly (real name: Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr.) was released along with five others.
Other celebrities who have been busted for drugs at this notorious checkpoint include Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Armie Hammer and Fiona Apple. The Grammy-winning songstress, 35, was arrested on Sept. 19 after law enforcement officials discovered hashish -- a potent type of marijuana -- on her bus.
