Early this morning St. Louis rapper Nelly was arrested on charges of rape. A woman is claiming that she was on the rapper’s tour bus last night in Washington and Nelly forced himself on her. Nelly is currently on tour with Florida Georgia Line. Nelly’s rep responded to TMZ and these claims with the following statement:
