Nelly arrested after woman accuses rapper of rape

Arrested: Nelly has been arrested after woman accused him of raping her on tour bus ahead of a Washington concert

Nelly has been arrested for rape, TMZ has reported. A woman accused the 42-year-old of raping her on his tour bus in Washington early on Saturday morning.

The rapper is on tour with Florida Georgia Line there, and was set to perform in Ridgefield, WA on Saturday night.

Sources told the site the alleged attack occurred at 3.45AM, and Nelly - whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr - was specifically identified by the victim.
He was charged with second degree rape at 7AM and taken into custody. 
In April 2015 Nelly was also arrested after a stash of drugs and weapons was found on his tour bus. 
The incident unfolded when Tennessee Highway Patrol pulled the bus over because it failed to display a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker.

But upon searching the vehicle, officers found methamphetamines, marijuana and handguns.
According to the police report, the trooper had smelled marijuana when they reached Nelly's bus, giving them probable cause to search the vehicle.

In the sleeper area on the bus they found five rocks that tested positive for meth, as well as a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. 

WRCB TV in Chattanooga reported at the time that police had found 100 small Ziploc bags, often used for the sales of narcotics, in the bus along with three high powered handguns.

A gold plated 50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45-caliber Tarus pistol and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson were confiscated from the vehicle. 
The St. Louis native was booked on felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Nelly remains one of the biggest selling rap artists in the US, shifting more than 22million albums.
His 2000, 2002 and 2004 albums Country Grammar, Nellyville and Suit all hit number one on the Billboard charts.
He also had four number one singles with Hot In Herre, Shake Ya Tailfeather, Grillz, and his 2002 smash hit featuring Kelly Rowland, Dilemma.
