Rapper Nelly’s Tour Bus Raided at Texas Checkpoint
Posted on Oct 13, 2012 in Personal Injury
Nelly, the rapper famous for hits like “Hot in Here” and “Air Force Ones”, was the latest celebrity finding himself in trouble at the United States Border Patrol checkpoint near Sierra Blanca, Tex. The rapper’s tour bus was searched at the checkpoint, and drug dogs helped the border patrol agents uncover heroin, marijuana, and a loaded gun. One of Nelly’s associates was arrested for possession of the drugs and the firearm. The border patrol checkpoint has become infamous, after stopping other musicians’ tour buses and arresting performers such as Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Fiona Apple for drug possession. Tour bus companies have warned their drivers to either avoid the checkpoint or alert their riders ahead of time that they should discard any illegal material before entering the checkpoint.
