Breaking: Rapper Nelly Arrested for Possession of Drugs, Placed in County Jail

Chileeee!!! Where is Ashanti!?

Cornell Haynes better known by his rap name, Nelly, was arrested on felony drug charges in Putnam County, Tennessee this morning (April 11)!

According to numerous reports, he was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

According to Times Free Press, a trooper stopped a motor coach bus that Nelly was riding in for failure to display a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA) sticker on the vehicle. The investigating trooper planned to conduct an inspection on the bus when he noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.

Via: Times Free Press:

"The troopers discovered in the sleeper area a plastic bag that contained five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. Further investigation revealed approximately 100 small Ziploc bags that are commonly associated with the sale of narcotics and numerous handguns, including a gold-plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

The bus was occupied by six subjects, one of whom was identified as Brian Jones, 44, of St. Louis, Missouri. Mr. Jones, a convicted felon, was also in possession of a handgun and was charged accordingly.

Nelly, 40, also of St. Louis, Missouri and Jones, who were traveling to St. Louis when the traffic stop occurred, were transported to the Putnam County Jail."


And, this isn't the first time. Back in 2012, cops raided Nelly's tour bus in Texas and found heroin, guns and marijuana.

Nelly is now being held on $10,000 bail, according to reports. Damn!
