Country Music Mug Shots – Willie Nelson
Border Patrol in Texas found 6 oz. of marijuana on board Willie Nelson‘s tour bus a few days after Thanksgiving in 2010. According to CBS news, Nelson had pulled into a Sierra Blanca checkpoint, and when they opened the bus door, an officer smelled pot. Two others were also arrested, but Nelson claimed the marijuana was his.
After taking this pretty photo, the singer was released on $2,500 bond. Many thought he’d go to jail, but it seems he got the star treatment and only paid a small fine. It wasn’t the first time behind bars for Nelson. He was arrested in Louisiana in 2006, when cops found one-and-a-half pounds of marijuana and 3 oz. of hallucinogenic mushrooms on his bus. In the ’90s, he was nabbed when police found a marijuana cigarette in his car’s ash tray.
