DIONNE WARWICK has been arrested at MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT after baggage handlers found 11 suspected marijuana cigarettes in her luggage.

The veteran singer, cousin of Whitney Houston, was charged with possession of five grammes of marijuana and released after signing an affidavit promising to appear in court.

Warwick was due to take a morning flight to Los Angeles when the suspicious item was spotted in her hand luggage. She didn’t make the flight.

Her work with Hal David and Burt Bacharach produced more than 30 US hits between 1962 and 1972, including best known track ‘Walk On By’.
