What type of bored police officer does it take to arrest constantly stoned pothead Willie Nelson for marijuana possession?
It’s being reported that at 9 a.m. on Friday Nelson’s tour bus was pulled over at a Sierra Blanca, Texas checkpoint where officials discovered 6 ounces of marijuana on the bus.
Nelson, who owns the bus was taken to the Hudspeth County Jail where he was charged with a misdemeanor, while paying a bond of $2,500.
It’s not Nelson’s first and certainly it won’t be his last arrest for marijuana possession, but still, officers must have known what they would find on his bus when it was pulled over. More annoying is the fact that road blocks for these purposes should be a clear violation of the 4th amendment.
In other words, we’re on your side Willie.
