Nelly issues a statement after heroin, weed and gun were found by cops on his tour bus during a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca recently. The rapper claims innocence, insisting the drugs and weapon did not belong to him, but a member of his entourage.

"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," he says as quoted by TMZ. The culprit is identified as Brian Keith Jones and has been arrested.

"Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board," the "Hot in Herre" hitmaker continues. "Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual."

In more personal notes on Twitter, he says, "I'm not gone front I'm MAD as Hell about this sh#t!!2have some1 who works 4u n who u call a friend 4 ova 10years jeopardize ur life WTF? That being said he was not only an employee but he was fam some1 who protected my life 4many years!No excuses for wad he did!!!!"

He concludes, "My heart goes out to his fam and is kids!!!!"

Since when is it illegal to have a gun in your vehicle in Texas? It is obvious the police in this particular area have never heard of the 4th amendment to the US Constitution with and seem to think they can search anyone anytime they want. Why is that not being questioned and investigated???
