Simpler times: Nelly at May's Wildflower Festival in Richardson
Our friends at Riverfront Times reported today that rapper Nelly's tour bus was pulled over in the West Texas town of Sierra Blanca last night, the same checkpoint town Fiona Apple, Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg were pulled over in. Only this time, besides weed, Nelly had a loaded .45 and heroin in the mix. Drug-sniffing dogs lead police to the stash, and a member of his "entourage" was arrested. Nelly was let go.

Note to tour managers: DON'T ROUTE YOUR ACT THROUGH SIERRA BLANCA IF THEY HAVE A LOADED GUN AND 36 BAGS HEROIN ON THEM. Or, really, at all.

Oh, Nelly. Can't we just go back to the simpler days? Like when you played the Wildflower Festival?

I've driven thru there and didn't get searched. But maybe I don't look like the heroin type.

It's a completely unconstitutional mandatory search of all vehicles travelling through Sierra Blanca on Interstate 10. SEARCH THEM AT THE BORDER AND GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY SHIT WHEN I DRIVE ACROSS TEXAS

It's not a speed trap--it's a security checkpoint that, when active, requires all traffic to exit and stop. It's been there for as long as I can remember (and I'm 54). It's operated by the border patrol, though I think there are state troopers on hand as well. It's scary as shit.

Why do celebrities go thru this city when they are "ridin' dirty"?

I'm more shocked that he makes enough money to buy 36 bags of heroin.

These tour managers need to learn how to route their tours better. Avoid booking shows in Houston or Austin after shows in Arizona. Go North.

Wow! Everybody should drive around that town. I wonder why they stopped them. The FBI needs to investigate that police department.

I'm pissed that no one offered me any heroin back when I hung out with those guys in May.

@thephilipbrown I'm a hip hop enthusiast, and Murphy Lee was really good. I own his album.
