Nelly’s Lawyer Says Drugs From Arrest Do Not Belong to Rapper

Nelly*The drugs found on Nelly’s tour bus Saturday (April 11) in Tennessee do not belong to the rapper, according to his lawyer.

Speaking with TMZ.com, Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, said 15 to 20 people had access to the bus prior to the stop in Tennessee. In addition, he mentioned that multiple people were on the bus when police searched the vehicle.

According to reports, Nelly was arrested on his tour bus Saturday after cops pulled the vehicle over for not having proper stickers. TMZ notes that authorities said they smelled pot, which resulted in them searching the bus and allegedly finding meth, marijuana and guns.

For Rosenblum, the issue seems to revolve around the meth as he told TMZ, a small quantity of [MDMA/Ecstasy] was discovered.”

“Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered,” he added.

The Tennessee incident echoes a similar incident involving Nelly in 2012. In that situation, Nelly and six other people were arrested after police pulled over the rapper’s tour bus at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas and found .64 ounces of heroin, a loaded .45-caliber pistol and 10 pounds of marijuana after searching the vehicle.

One of the passengers, Brian Keith Jones, later admitted to police that the drugs and gun were his. He was ultimately placed under arrest, while Nelly and the five other passengers were released.
