The saintliest of all the Lunatics was arrested in Tennessee yesterday morning when police found drugs and weapons on his tour bus during an inspection.
Law enforcement made the initial stop because the vehicle failed to display U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association stickers, but the interaction soon escalated into a bust involving marijuana, crystal meth and a number of guns.
Nelly himself (real name Cornell Iral Haynes Jr.) was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.More »
