Nelly and girlfriend Shantel Jackson
Rapper and reality star Nelly was recently arrested on gun and drug charges in Tennessee. Police know tour buses often carry drug paraphernalia and drugs and as a result often stop musicians traveling from town to town. Nelly, real name Cornell Haynes, has denied the drugs and guns found during the surprise search belong to him.

In the meantime, no news has been released by television network B.E.T. regarding what impact Nelly's arrest will have on his hit reality show "Nellyville." However, the arrest would certainly bring in increased ratings for season two, as the case works its way through the court system.
