Texas authorities: Drugs, gun found on Nelly's bus
SIERRA BLANCA, Texas (AP) — Authorities say they found drugs and a gun on rapper Nelly's tour bus at a West Texas border checkpoint where several celebrities have been arrested.
Hudspeth County sheriff's officials said an initial search Wednesday night turned up small amounts of marijuana and heroin and a loaded gun. Authorities say a second search revealed a duffel bag with about 10 pounds of pot.
Officials say one of the occupants was arrested after admitting the drugs and gun belonged to him. Nelly and five others were released.
Previous drug-related arrests of celebrities at the checkpoint near Sierra Blanca included Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and Armand Hammer.
A publicist for Nelly, whose birth name is Cornell Iral Haynes, didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
