St. Lunatics leader Nelly can breathe a little easier this week after catching a break in court over a drug-related case.
According to reports, Nelly can have any and all criminal charges connected to an April tour bus arrest if he stays out of trouble.
The rapper pled guilty in a Tennessee court to possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. His lawyer argued his clean record qualified him for a pretrial diversion, and the judge agreed. If Nelly stays out of trouble for a year, the charges will be wiped from his record. (TMZ)
Nelly addressed the legal situation on his Instagram page last spring.
The drug bust went down back in April..
Rapper and reality TV star Nelly is facing felony drug charges after being arrested in Tennessee on Saturday. Tennessee Highway Patrol said in a news release that Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes, was pulled over about 9:20 a.m. because the bus he was riding in failed to display a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker.
