Luckily, one of the homies decided to ride or die for the crew and stepped up and admitted everything belonged to him. He was handcuffed and thrown in jail while Nelly and the other guys were let go.
Since then, Nelly released a statement:
It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual.
