Nelly arrested

Rapper Nelly has been arrested in Tennessee on felony drug charges.

The Hot in Herre hitmaker was taken into custody after a state trooper found illegal drugs in a vehicle Nelly was a passenger in during a traffic stop on Saturday morning (11Apr15).


Reports suggest a search of Nelly's motor led to the discovery methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a cache of handguns.


The rapper has been charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.


In 2012 Texas authorities discovered marijuana, heroin and a loaded gun on the rapper's tour bus, but the hitmaker was released after members of his entourage took responsibility for the illegal items.
