Willie Nelson arrested on drug charge in Texas

Country singer charged with marijuana possession

Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession in Texas yesterday (November 26) after police found drugs on his tourbus.

Six ounces of the drug were found on the bus at 9am (MST) in Sierra Blanca, a US Border Patrol spokesperson told the El Paso Times newspaper. An officer had searched the vehicle after smelling the substance with three people, including Nelson, arrested.

Nelson was held briefly, paid a $2,500 (£1,600) bond and was released.


He’s due to play the Winstar Casino in Thakerville tonight.
