Nelly, he of game-changing early ’00s singles and reality TV, was arrested on Saturday after a bus he was traveling in was pulled over.

According to the Tennesse Highway Patrol’s statement, troopers found five rocks that tested positive for meth, as well as a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and numerous handguns. They smelled marijuana when they first reached the bus.

Nelly will face charges for felony possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, but a statement from his attorney Scott Rosenblum says that the St. Louis rapper will “not be associated with the contraband” once the details of the case come to light. He was released from Putnam County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Nelly’s last album, M.O., came out in 2013. Stream lead single ‘Get Like Me’ below [via AP].
