Nelly’s Tour Bus Busted with Heroin + Marijuana + Guns In Texas
Nelly and his crew made the unfortunate decision of driving their tour bus through Sierra Blanca, Texas last night. Nelly's bus was holding 36 bags of heroin, ten pounds of weed and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
Sierra Blanca is a sleepy, small town of about 500 people and I think ANY tour bus should avoid it at costs, but I assume it's a good place to stop on I-10. But now, this place is officially a trap. Few weeks ago Fiona Apple was busted right there for weed possession. Before that? Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and most likely tons of unknown's . All in the same place in Texas...Sierra Blanca. I am not saying that any of that is right to posses, just have some common sense!
Apparently the police there, just search every vehicle that comes into every rest stop with drug dogs, so where they got caught wasn't surprising, but what they got caught with was. One of the crew, Bryan Keith Jones admitted that drugs and gun were his, and Nelly and the rest of the crew were let go. Jones was taken to jail awaiting release on bond.
Nelly released a statement to TMZ about the scare. “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, 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.”
I would say roll on down past this place on I-10 and pee in the back of the bus in the future. That said, good thing they got the drugs off the street.
