Nelly was just as surprised as the cops when drugs and guns were found on his tour bus.
TMZ.com reports that Nelly was detained Wednesday morning when authorities searched his tour bus, turning up 36 bags of heroin, at least 10 pounds of marijuana and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
Now, Nelly claims that he had no idea these contraband items were brought onto the bus.
“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," he said in a statement.
He added, “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.”
In regards to the heroine found on the bus, Nelly thought that it was actually pure ecstasy, more commonly known as Molly.
