Nelly and his entourage are the latest famous folks to fall victim to That Checkpoint — the one on I-10 in Texas where it seems as if everyone and his brother gets busted for having something shady on the tour bus.

The rapper and six other people who were on Nelly’s bus were detained during a search Wednesday night in which the Border Patrol found about 10 pounds of weed, some heroin and a loaded gun on board, TMZ reported.

Ultimately one guy, Brian Keith Jones, took responsibility for the drugs and gun; he was arrested, while the others were let go.

Previously popped at Sierra Blanca? Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion), Armie Hammer and most recently Fiona Apple.
