Legendary country singer Willie Nelson, 77, was charged with marijuana possession above 6 ounces, which was allegedly found aboard his tour bus.
Police spokesman Bill Brooks explains that the tour bus pulled into the checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas around 9 a.m. Friday. An officer smelled pot when a door was opened and happened to actually find marijuana.
In the end, three people were arrested, including the country singer.
Sheriff Arvin West told the El Paso Times that Nelson, a Texas native, claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly and paid $2,500 before being released.
