(AP) – yesterday

SIERRA BLANCA, Texas (AP) — A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn't immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

Nelson spokeswoman Elaine Schock declined to comment when contacted via e-mail by The Associated Press.
And then the airports.

No. Really.

  1. In the comments an an article on this I was reading the other day, one of the commenters was from the area where this happened. He claimed that the police there are known for stopping and searching vehicles for any infraction they can find in order to finance the town's existence.

  2. O.T.

    You were talking of this the other day...

  3. They're doing that, stopping people for the possible fines they can wring from them, EVERYWHERE. The cops are desperate to finance their own salaries. So they need to be TRAINED. Right NOW.

    And, yes, people should be yanking their money from the banks WHILE they're training their local cops.

    Way past time to get SERIOUS.

    This is BEYOND THE PALE.
