Nelly has seen better days than those following this past Saturday’s (April 11) arrest. In case you missed it, the rap star was arrested in Tennessee for felony drug possession, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, which included ecstasy and more surprisingly, meth.

Nelly took responsibility for the arrest in a statement released via Instagram. It reads:

Although I am unable to speak to the legal specifics and my attorney has put out a preliminary statement, I feel the need to take responsibility for my choices in needing to be more aware of the people I associate with and allow onto my property while committing to make better choices moving forward.

While my instinct of course, is to be accessible to my friends, fans and acquaintances, the last thing I would want to do is compromise the respect and admiration of my friends, family and fans.

At this point, if none of the drugs belonged to Nelly (which he, of course, claims), why would he put himself in the position to be nabbed at this point in his career. Expect more developments.
