Over the last five decades, it’s become a pretty well established fact that a solid number of musicians keep marijuana on their tour bus. I don’t know if the percentage is ten, twenty or fifty, but it’s far from a shock when someone famous winds up spending a night in jail for possessing a little weed. Fans usually laugh off the arrest, and since having a small bit of weed for personal use isn’t a major crime, the incident is largely forgotten. Getting caught with heroin, however, is still dangerous, outlandish and against the law enough to turn more than a few heads.

That’s what Nelly and members of his entourage found out last night when their tour bus was pulled over during a routine stop at the Sierra Blanca border patrol checkpoint in Texas. According to TMZ, the canine unit supposedly alerted the handlers to the presence of drugs, and a more exhaustive search uncovered thirty-six baggies of heroin, ten pounds of marijuana and a loaded gun.

Seven people were reportedly on the bus at the time of the stop. All were detained while the vehicle was searched, but after the illegal substances were found, one man stepped forward and claimed responsibility. He was immediately arrested and everyone else was let go. On the one hand, I’m sure Nelly is pleased he took responsibility, but on the other hand, letting anyone keep heroin on your tour bus is an awful decision.

Nelly hasn’t spoken publically on the situation, but when he does, we’ll be sure to let you know his thoughts.
