Nelly just got himself into a lot of trouble. According to reports, the rapper was arrested after cops allegedly found drugs on his tour bus.

TMZ writes:

A state trooper pulled over the bus Saturday morning for not having a required Dept. of Transportation sticker … and when the officer caught a strong whiff of pot … he decided to conduct a search.

Cops say they found a baggie with crystal rocks that tested positive for meth, and a small amount of marijuana in the sleeper area of the bus. They say they also found quite the stash of guns — a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol, and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

Nelly was booked for the meth — a felony — and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also booked for drug paraphernalia — cops say there were about 100 small Ziplock bags commonly used for the sale of drugs.

Interestingly enough, Nelly’s lawyer claims the drugs discovered weren’t his. TMZ writes:

Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ, there were 15 to 20 people who had access to the bus prior to the stop and there were multiple people on the bus when cops searched it. Rosenblum seems to take issue with cops on the meth issue, saying “a small quantity of [MDMA/Ecstasy] was discovered.”

Rosenblum adds, “Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered.”


  1. Wow. Someone said on some blog a while ago that Nelly is selling but I didn’t take it seriously because they said the same thing about Nick Cannon.

    1. Yup. That’s why he has to either be using or dealing. Hell maybe both. He’s doing something he ain’t got no business doing.

  2. He’s too old to be doing stupid things like this. Whether he had the drugs himself or his boys had it, he still needs to reevaluate his life. Had he played the game right, he would be out here making business moves like Dre and Jay right about now.

  3. First off the guy admitted to them drugs and the gun being his, that’s why he was only in there for an hour. He then got let go on bond. So apparently Nelly is good..
