Police in Texas detained Nelly last night after finding .64 ounces of heroin, a loaded .45-caliber pistol and 10 pounds of marijuana in the rapper's tour bus, TMZ reports.

The bus was pulled over at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, when a police dog detected the presence of drugs on the bus, according to law enforcement sources. 

Along with Nelly there were six other passengers on the bus, all of whom were detained during the search. Brian Keith Jones, one of the passengers, told police the drugs and gun were his and was placed under arrest. Nelly and the five others were then released.

There's been no word from Nelly or his camp regarding the incident.

Fiona Apple was arrested at the same checkpoint a few weeks ago after police found hash on her bus, and Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson have also been busted there before.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
