Nelly Tour Bus Passenger

Pleads Not Guilty

to Felony Possession

10/13/2012 5:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brian Keith Jones, the man who was busted aboard Nelly's tour bus for drug possession, plead not guilty yesterday ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Nelly's tour bus was pulled over on Thursday in Sierra Blanca, TX and cops discovered 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over TEN POUNDS of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag.

At the time of the arrest, law enforcement sources told TMZ that Brian Keith Jones admitted the drugs (as well as a loaded .45 caliber pistol) were his.

But it looks like Jones will try and fight the felony charges ... as law enforcement sources tell TMZ he pled not guilty last night. He was released on bond early this morning.

For his part, Nelly previously told TMZ he had no idea the drugs or the gun were onboard the bus.

I'm sure this guy is over 40 years old and he's running around with losers like Nelly with guns and tons of illegal. A fool at 40 is a fool forever!

So Nelly is claiming he doesn't know anything about this? That's bunch of BS, he hasn't had a hit record in almost a decade, no one listen to him anymore. So what other skills does he have to make money other that slinging dope?

Blacks are always innocent. They are framed by the white folk to keep them down.
