Country music superstar Willie Nelson was arrested Friday morning for allegedly having about 6 ounces [170 grams] of marijuana after his tour bus was stopped at the Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, about 85 miles [137 km] east of El Paso.EXTERNAL LINK
Nelson, 77, was traveling from California to Austin, where he owns a ranch.
Nelson was stopped at the checkpoint about 9 a.m.
Border Patrol agents searched Nelson's tour bus and found the marijuana, which Nelson claimed was his, said Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West. [...] West said that Nelson posted a $2,500 [1,888 EUR] bond and was on the road again by 1:30 p.m. Friday.
A court date has yet to be set.
Nelson's publicist Elaine Schock could not be reached for comment Friday, and no changes had been made to Nelson's tour schedule.
His next performance will be today at the WinStar casino in Thackerville, Okla. ~ read more
