Whoa, Nelly! Rapper arrested on drug charges in Tennessee.

Rapper and reality TV star Nelly is facing felony drug charges after being arrested in Tennessee on Saturday.
The rapper's motor coach was stopped on Saturday morning on Interstate 40 in Putnam County for not displaying legally
required stickers, when a state trooper smelled marijuana from the vehicle, the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security said.
A search turned up methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as several handguns.
Nelly, 40, is facing charges including felony possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. The St. Louis native was released from Putnam County Jail on a $10,000 bond. His next court date is June 19.
One other man travelling in the coach was also arrested and charged.
In 2012 authorities discovered marijuana, heroin and a loaded gun on the rapper's tour bus at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in West Texas. A member of the singer's entourage took responsibility for the items and was arrested. Others on the bus including Nelly were released.
Nelly has performed in several movies and was named by Billboard magazine in 2009 as one of the top artists of the decade.
