Willie Nelson - Nelson Charged With Drug Possession
Country legend WILLIE NELSON has been charged with marijuana possession following his Friday morning (26Nov10) arrest in Texas.
The singer's tour bus was pulled over by Border Patrol police at a Sierra Blanca checkpoint and an officer embarked on a search of the vehicle after reportedly smelling pot.
Six ounces (170 grams) of marijuana was found and Nelson, along with two other people, was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.
The 77 year old was booked in Hudspeth County Jail and posted $2,500 (£1,670) bail. A spokesman for the U.S. Border Patrol has now confirmed the legendary musician has been charged with possession after admitting that the drugs belonged to him.
