Nelly has some legal troubles.

The Country Grammar rapper was arrested Saturday morning on felony drug charges. Tennessee state troopers claim they pulled over a Prevost motor coach on I-40 about halfway between Nashville and Knoxville around 9:20 a.m. Saturday morning because it didn’t have the correct stickers displayed.

It didn’t take long for troopers to search the bus after they smelled marijuana. During the search,  troopers found five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. They also found several handguns, including a gold-plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson.


Six people were inside the bus, including  Nelly. He  has been charged with felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Nelly is out on bond.
