There seriously must be something up with the border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca. Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and of course Fiona Apple, have all been caught out with drugs on their tour buses after being searched. Now there has been another big name added to the list…Nelly.
Much like those before him, Nelly was busted with approximately ten whole pounds of buds, which according to TMZ, who broke the story, is about the size of a big pillow, and was stuffed in a duffel bag. But the rapper was also busted with some much heavier stuff – around .64 ounces of heroin stored in 36 different baggies, and a loaded .45 caliber pistol. I mean…what did he think was going to happen when border patrol found those things?
Out of the seven people who were on the bus at the time, only one got busted. A Brian Keith Jones must have drawn the short straw and took the wrap for the whole deal. Nelly and his crew were all detained.
