Nelly Arrested In Tennessee

"E.I .. E.I .. Uh Oh" (like what I did there, lol.) Hip Hop artist Nelly, whose legal name is Cornell Hayes, was arrested on Saturday in a small town in Tennessee. The superstar was arrested on felony drug charges and according to the State of Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Nelly was sent to the Putnam County jail on Saturday morning after his Prevost motor coach bus was pulled over on I-40 for failure to display a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker on the vehicle.

When the trooper approached the vehicle, reports state he noticed an odor of marijuana coming from the bus and conducted a probable cause search. According to the police report, the troopers discovered methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia, 100 small Ziploc bags that are commonly associated with the sale of narcotics and numerous handguns, including a gold-plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

Several other people were on the bus with Nelly, including 44 year old Brian Jones of St. Louis, who is a convicted felon and was in possession of a fire arm. He was also arrested and transported to the Putnam County jail.

The bus was on it's way to St. Louis when the traffic stop occurred.

Food For Thought: I bet "It's Getting Hot in Herre" has new meaning for Nelly tonight - as his butt sits in a tiny little Tn jail. I mean .. pot .. okay .. whatever I guess?! But freaking METH?! What the hell was/is he thinking?! I interviewed Nelly a few years ago on the CMT Red Carpet (he was at the Awards Show performing with Florida Georgia Line) and again about a year ago when he did a tour stop with the country duo. He was really nice and they put on one heck of a show. He's got talent that is FOR SURE. Most "stars" of his caliber don't really care to interview with anyone unless they HAVE to and he certainly didn't have to chat with me. So ...I'll give him that. But seriously dude ..  FREAKING METH!?!?! So stupid .. so, so, so STUPID!
