| April 12, 2015 | 0 Comments

Yesterday, while traveling on his tour bus, Real Husbands of Hollywood star rapper Nelly along with his loyal bodyguard Brian Jones have been arrested and charged with gun and drug possession during a traffic stop in Tennessee while on his tour bus.  According to the official state police press release, authorities pulled over the bus because of an expired sticker and once the cops smelled what they believed to be marijuana, a search was conducted of the bus which turned up several guns and drugs.

Cops say they found a baggie with crystal rocks that tested positive for meth, and a small amount of marijuana in the sleeper area of the bus. They say they also found quite the stash of guns — a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol, and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

Nelly was booked for the meth — a felony — and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also booked for drug paraphernalia — cops say there were about 100 small Ziplock bags commonly used for the sale of drugs.

Interesting enough, back in 2012 Nelly along with the same bodyguard Brian Jones was stopped by Border Patrol agents with a canine dog and discovered drugs and weapons on his tour bus.
