Rapper Nelly (real name Cornell Haynes, 40 years old) is in jail tonight after his bus was stopped by Police in Tennessee.
Tennessee Highway Patrol stated in a press release that the rapper was stopped because the bus he rode in didn’t show a U.S. Department of Worldwide and Transport Fuel Tax label.
According to the troopers they smelled pot once they approached the private tour bus.
The St. Louis native is facing possession of pot charges and ownership of drug paraphernalia.
In addition, five rocks that tested positive for meth were found when the troopers searched the bus. They also claim they found handguns.
