Rapper, Nelly has been arrested. According to Rap-Up, the “Nellyville” rapper was arrested in Tennessee Sunday morning for felony possession of drugs. Sunday morning, Highway Patrol pulled over Nelly’s tour bus due to not displaying the U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association stickers required on the tour bus. When the bus was pulled over, the officer “noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.”

Rap-Up reports that when the police searched the bus, they found,

“five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia” in the sleeper area of the bus. The search also turned up several handguns including a .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a .45-caliber Taurus pistol, and a .500 Smith & Wesson magnum.”

The St. Louis rapper’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum told CNN that 15-20 people had access to the tour bus and that the drugs were not his client’s.
