We reported yesterday that Nelly’s tour bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpointin Texas recently, where police discovered a loaded gun, weed and heroin.

While one of the bus passengers admitted that the gun and drugs were his and was arrested as a result, Nelly released the following statement about the incident:

“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, October 11th. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials in Sierra Blanca, Texas did not press charges against anyone other than that individual.”
