Country singing legend Willie Nelson, 77, was arrested on Friday (Nov. 26, 2010) for possession of marijuana.
Nelson was traveling from California to his home state of Texas when his tour bus was pulled over by the border patrol in Sierra Blanca, Texas.
It was reported that an officer smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and ordered a search to be done. During an extensive search of the tour bus, officers found six ounces pot.
Nelson told authorities that it was his. Three others were also taken into custody and booked at the Hudspeth County Jail.
Nelson’s bond was set at $2,500. He was released on the same day.
