Willie Nelson Mug Shot: Country Legend Charged with Pot Possession

The Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office in Texas has released the latest mug shot of country music legend Willie Nelson.

Nelson has been charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas, according to a U.S. Border Patrol spokesman.

Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the country singer’s 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.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn’t immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his.

The singer was held briefly on a $2,500 bond before being released.
