Rapper Nelly was arrested and charged with felony drug possession following a routine traffic stop in Tennessee Saturday.

After patrolmen flagged down the rapper’s tour bus for failing to have a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker, officers found five rocks of meth, a small amount of weed, a lot of firearms and unspecified drug paraphernalia, the Associated Press reports.

The reality TV star was then arrested and booked in Putnam County Jail on felony drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia charges.

Nelly — real name Cornell Haynes — was released after posting a $10,000 bond. He is set to next appear in court on June 19.

The hip hop star is most famous for the early 2000’s hits “Country Grammar” and “Hot in Herre” and is still scheduled for a summer tour starting in May with New Kids on The Block and TLC.
