Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and More: Five Most Famous Pot Arrests in Texas
According to TMZ, agents claimed they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside the bus. Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released.
Obviously, there's Texas and Weed aren't friends--here's are four other celebrities who've been arrested for pot in the Lone Star State.
1. Willie Nelson In 1995, Nelson was first busted in Texas with pot in his car. The charges were later dropped when the search was found illegal, but in 2010, Nelson was again busted in Sierra Blanca--the same small town in West Texas where Snoop was recently arrested. A search of his bus turned up about six ounces of marijuana.
According to the New York Times:
Kit Bramblett, a local prosecutor, said initially that Mr. Nelson could pay his debt to society with a small fine and by appearing in court to sing "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain." But Judge Becky Dean-Walker quickly shot down the proposed plea deal, calling it a joke that "got out of hand." As recently as last July Mr. Bramblett and Judge Dean-Walker were still at odds about an appropriate penalty for Mr. Nelson; the final disposition of the case was not immediately clear.Back then, too, Snoop Dogg rallied against Nelson's arrest, posting videos online saying, "They better leave Willie the fuck alone."
