Nelly Rejects Knowing About Heroin On Tour Bus
It seems that Nelly, the R&B singer with such hits as “Warrior” and “Hold Up”, is in big trouble after police officers found heroin and a loaded gun Wednesday. With 36 small bags of the drug found and 10 pounds of marijuana found, it could be enough to put Nelly away for a long time. However, reports are coming in that the singer is flat out denying that he had any knowledge that the drugs were even on the bus.
TMZ broke with the story and it turns out that the bus was stopped at the Sierra Bianca border checkpoint. For those who don’t follow the drug arrest history, that is the same place as Willie Nelson, Armie Hammer, Snoop Dogg and, most recently, Fiona Apple were arrested and had their buses searched. You would think that by now, that they would pick a different way to go through back to their homes.
The singer told TMZ, “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. … 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.” Many find it hard to believe that the singer didn’t know.
It seems that the singer is riding gangster as his pose has drugs in his bus. It is always fun to have a good time, but that is against the law. No news yet as to what Nelly will be charged with. It might come down to another “donation” to the city of Sierra Blanca to be able to take care of their own. As we reported once about the fact that Celebrities are bailing out California one DUI at a time, the same goes for this. Rappers are bailing out cities with the amount of drug busts they have.

What do you thinks of this? Should Nelly be accountable for the drugs that he claims, “had no clue that they were there” on the bus? Luckily there was one guy, Brian Keith Jones, who took the fall for the drugs and was arrested. We’ll see if Nelly decides to bail him out of jail for taking the fall. Rule Number One of all busts: Always have a Fall Guy. Do you agree?
