Okay, seriously, when will touring musicians carrying illegal drugs on their buses learn to either avoid the border-patrol checkpoint in the town of Sierra Blanca, Texas or exhaust all of their drugs before they get there? Nelly — who apparently has a thing for heroin — now joins Willie Nelson, Fiona Apple, and Snoop Dogg, among others, to recently be busted there.
According to a press release from local police sent to MTV News, the “Hot in Herre” rapper was detained Wednesday night during a routine search at a border-patrol checkpoint in the town of Sierra Blanca, Texas. The bus search was conducted after a police dog detected the presence of drugs.
The officers at the scene found 0.64 ounces of heroin distributed among 36 small plastic bags, more than 10 pounds of marijuana and a loaded .45-caliber pistol. A man named Brian Keith Jones reportedly admitted that the illegal items were his and was subsequently arrested. Nelly was eventually let go, along with the five other individuals who were on the bus at the time.
IT’S GETTIN’ HOT IN HERRRRRRE!
(Sorry, I just had to go there.)
