Due to his arrest, he pulled the plug on his scheduled show in Ridgefield where he was supposed to perform with Florida Georgia Line. "Anytime you feel like the whole world is against you you need to scratch that s**t its really you against the whole world because the whole world don't know you exist," he tweeted a cryptic message on Saturday morning.

He was reportedly released without charges hours later. "To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required. I was released , pending further investigation," he explained on Twitter following his release.

"Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation," his lawyer said. "Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."
