Nelly in real police wahala



Watching NELLYVILLE on TV you’d think Nelly is devoted just to his family life and will never pop into the news as a drug offender. But he did!

Nelly’s tour bus was pulled over by a state trooper and what was discovered in there landed him in police trouble, a mug shot and now, unsavoury media attention.

According to reports, the 40-year-old rapper and reality show star was detained after his vehicle was searched and marijuana, meth, handguns were found. Oh it’s hot in here all right.

Nelly faces charges of felony possession, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Another Passenger, Brian Jones, is also in trouble for possessing a handgun.

This is not the only time the police is uncovering drugs in his bus; in 2012 heroin was found after his bus was raided
