Nelly’s tour bus was pulled over at the famous check point in Sierra Blanca, Texas this week, where authorities found cocaine, heroin and guns on the bus.
As we previously reported, 10 pounds of marijuana, 36 baggies of heroin and a .45 caliber pistol was found on the bus, resulting in the arresting of passenger Brian Keith Jones.
Now, Nelly is speaking out the incident, saying he didn’t know any of that was on the bus.
"Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these,” he told the AP, USA Today reports.
He also told TMZ, “It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning."
“Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual,” he also said.
The same checkpoint in Texas has seen other celebrities get arrested for drugs, including Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and Armie Hammer.
