Nelly Arrested On Drug Charges
The 40-year-old rapper, known for hit tracks such as "E.I.," "Shake Ya Tailfeather" and "Hot in Herre," and another passenger, Brian Jones, were detained at Putnam County Jail and released later that day after posting 10,000 bail, NBC News quoted jail officials as saying.
Nelly's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, said in a statement to the ouetlet that "We are extremely confident that when the facts come out, Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered."
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDOS) said in a statement that the rapper, whose real name is Cornell Haynes, was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jones is accused of possessing a handgun as a convicted felon. He has not commented.
In 2012, at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, police had also stopped a bus carrying Nelly and several other people on suspicion of possessing 36 Ziploc bags of heroin, as well as pot and a loaded .45 caliber pistol. The rapper was not arrested.
