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.
Next week: the Pope will be arrested for celebrating mass. Or something.“
Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.
*It's wrong to arrest anyone for possession.
