Drugs, gun found on rapper Nelly's bus at Texas checkpoint
SAN ANTONIO (REUTERS) - Authorities discovered marijuana, heroin and a loaded gun on Grammy-winning rapper Nelly's tour bus during a routine stop at a Border Patrol checkpoint in West Texas, law enforcement officials said.
A member of the singer's entourage took responsibility for the items and was arrested after the search on Wednesday evening, while others on the bus including Nelly were released, officials said.
The checkpoint, which is not on the border, is used by the Border Patrol to check the citizenship status of motorists on Interstate 10.
The incident took place at the same checkpoint where singers Willie Nelson and Fiona Apple, rapper Snoop Dogg and actor Armand Hammer have been stopped for possession of controlled substances.
