US rapper Nelly arrested for rape on bus

Police have arrested US rapper Nelly, after a woman said he raped her on his tour bus in a town outside Seattle, an accusation the Grammy winner’s attorney staunchly denied.

Auburn police spokesman Commander Steve Stocker said Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, was in jail after being arrested about 4:37am Saturday (local time) in his tour bus at a Walmart. Police said in a statement the woman called 911 to report being sexually assaulted by Nelly on the tour bus.

Nelly is a three-time Grammy winner, including for the song Hot in Herre (sic), which won the best male rap solo performance award in 2002. Nelly is also known for the hits My Place and Over and Over. He appeared in the 2005 film The Longest Yard alongside Adam Sandler.
