'Drugs and gun' found on Nelly's tour bus

PROBLEMS: Nelly

RAPPER NELLY has been arrested after police reportedly found heroin, marijuana and a loaded gun, on his tour bus.

The damming discovery was made during a routine stop at a checkpoint near El Paso, Texas.

According to Sky News member of the singer's entourage, Brian Keith Jones, reportedly claimed the illegal items were his and was arrested while others on the bus, including the rapper, were released.

Rusty Fleming, of the local sheriff's office told Sky: "The agent requested all seven occupants out of the bus and conducted an inspection of the vehicle.”

"A search produced a small plastic container containing marijuana, 36 small bags containing heroin, and a loaded .45 pistol."

"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.”

"Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board."

Speaking after his arrest on Twitter he said he was ‘mad as hell’ with the man in question.
