An early Saturday morning in Tennessee did not yield the best results for Nelly as his tour bus was pulled over in West Tennessee on Saturday. A state trooper pulled over the bus for not having the proper stickers when he smelled the distinct odor of weed. Once the trooper conducted a search of the bus, he discovered what would amount to a small kingpin’s amount of guns and drug paraphernalia from weed to a Walter White sized stash of meth.

Per the Chattanooga Times Free Press:

At approximately 9:20 a.m. on Saturday, Trooper Michael Loftis stopped a Prevost motor coach bus on Interstate 40 near the 275 mile marker for failure to display a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA) sticker on the vehicle. The investigating trooper planned to conduct an inspection on the bus when he noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.

Trooper Loftis, assisted by THP Sgt. Donald Jennings, then conducted a probable cause search of the bus. The troopers discovered in the sleeper area a plastic bag that contained five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. Further investigation revealed approximately 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.

Nelly (real name Cornell Haynes) was charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Putnam County Jail in Chatanooga, TN where it is unclear if he has posted bail.
