Following in the footsteps of several unlucky famous people to have been busted in the same small Texas town, Sierra Blanca police found marijuana, heroin, and a loaded pistol inside noted hip-hop artist Nelly's tour bus. A member of his entourage, Brian Keith Jones, was taken into custody after taking responsibility for the items.
Nelly protested his innocence on Twitter before releasing a more official statement this afternoon:
"It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials on our tour bus that resulted in his arrest," the statement begins. "Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board."
Border Patrol agents in this tiny town near the Mexican border have recently snared such high-profile people as Fiona Apple, WIllie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Armie Hammer.
