police should be having dogs inspect every bus at every rock concert in America.
Rappers are usually pot heads like Snoop Dogg or crackheads...but heroin?
I hope they don’t go easy on them.
Do you think PSY has these problems??
Holder will quietly get this dropped.
However, these amounts equal distribution levels and Nelly should be going to jail for a long time.
Another Ghetto Thug Black Rapper with pounds of Chronic and lots of Smack. At least this time no one was shot dead
PSY was caught at the airport trying to smuggle 10 pounds of kimchi. Said he couldn’t get the good stuff in the USA.
:: a guy named Brian Keith Jones — admitted the drugs and the gun were his. ::
Threw himself under the (tour) bus. Anyone want to bet Nelly leaves this guy to twist in the wind?
Nelly didn’t get arrested for the drugs. One guy on the bus took the fall for it. Everybody else was let go. Talk about taking one for the team. Oh well, it just means maybe he’ll get to spend some time in prison and work on his physique and ‘street cred’.
Get your hands off my rock n roll. They should let him keep the weed and bust him for the H.
Now, that is just downright mean of the police. This poor fellow was probably trying to deliver important meds for the president to help him in his next debate.
Here’s why the Celebs are getting busted. This Border Patrol Checkpoint is located on the highway from LA to Dallas Texas. Look at the map.
