Willie Nelson arrested for pot

Willie Nelson was arrested Friday in Texas after police found six ounces of weed on his tour bus. Nelson’s bus was searched at the Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca. He has since posted bond and been released.

TMZ says Nelson could use the “I have a medical marijuana card and forgot I still had six ounces of weed when I left California” defense. If that fails, PEOPLE says Nelson could face a minimum of six months in prison and, according to sheriff Arvin West, would be treated like any regular inmate.

“He could get 180 days in county jail, which if he does, I’m going to make him cook and clean,” West said. “He can wear the stripy uniforms just like the other ones do.”

“And it’ll be rapey like it is for everyone else,” the sheriff continued while vigorously thrusting his baton with an in and out motion.
