STL rapper, Nelly, was arrested in Putnam County and could potentially be facing felony charges.

Local Tennessee state troopers pulled over Nelly’s tour bus around 9:20 a.m. for failure to display both the U.S Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association stickers when they discovered numerous handguns along with five crystal rocks testing positive for meth, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Police reported six people were traveling on the bus one in which was identified as Brian Jones. Brian, 44, is a convicted felon and was sent to jail along with Nelly for possession of a firearm. Police immediately found and seized a gold-plated .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a .45-caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

Nelly, 40, was later released from Putnam County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

The Husbands Of Hollywood’s attorney strongly believes Nelly will be exonerated once the facts of the case are revealed. “We are extremely confident that when the facts come out, Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered,” attorney Scott Rosenblum declared in writing.
