Things must have been getting pretty "hot in here" on Nelly's tour bus this afternoon, when Texas police stopped the vehicle for a search.

At a West Texas border checkpoint, authorities claim they found a duffel bag with ten pounds of marijuana, some heroin and a loaded gun on the rapper's bus. One passenger was arrested after taking ownership of the illicit items, and Nelly, along with five other detainees, were released. 

The Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint is becoming a common spot for celebrity drug busts. Fiona Apple was recently arrested there after she was caught with hashish on her bus. Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and The Social Network actor Armie Hammer have been busted there in the past.
