Attention touring musicians: If you do drugs and need to pass through Sierra Blanca, Texas, either kick your habit beforehand or leave them at home!
The tiny town with a population of 533 has been home to some big-time celeb drug busts in recent years including Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and Willie Nelson. The latest victim? Rapper Nelly. He was detained by police last Wednesday after they stopped his tour bus for a routine search and, according to MTV.com, found a loaded gun, heroin and 10 pounds of pot!
Six other people riding on the tour bus were detained by police until a member of Nelly's staff, Brian Keith Jones, admitted the drugs and gun were his. Everyone else was released with no charges filed and the rapper made it very clear he had nothing to do with the seized contents. “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," he said to TMZ in a statement. "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.”
