Nelly was arrested for rape early this morning.
The incident happened on his tour bus which was in Washington state. Nelly is currently touring with the country group Florida Georgia Line and was supposed to play a show in Ridgefield, Washington tonight.
The woman told police the rape happened at about 3:45 AM and was specific in that Nelly was her attacker.
The 42-year old was arrested on second-degree rape and is currently in jail awaiting a bail hearing.
In 2015, Nelly was arrested and charged with felony possession drugs, possession marijuana and possession drug paraphernalia after Tennessee troopers found methamphetamine, marijuana, over 100 ziplock bags and numerous handguns on his tour bus.
This latest tour bus incident is potentially even more serious.
We’ll update when more information becomes available.
