Arresting Willie Nelson for smoking weed is like, well, arresting Willie Nelson for smoking weed, it’s just what he does man! But being famous, he may have an easier time getting out of trouble than most people. How’s he going to do it?
A West Texas prosecutor says that singer Willie Nelson can resolve marijuana possession charges if he agrees to plead guilty, pay a fine and sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” for the court.
County Attorney Kit Bramblett told The Associated Press Friday that he recommended those penalties to Hudspeth County’s judge Becky Dean-Walker. Bramblett says the judge specifically demanded that Nelson appear in court instead of pleading by mail, a common procedure in these cases.
Bramblett says, “She wants to meet Willie.”
Dean-Walker did not immediately return a call Friday.
Nelson was arrested for possession of marijuana on Nov. 26 at a Border Patrol checkpoint after an agent smelled an odor coming from the vehicle and decided to search it.
Hey, if it gets you off, I’d tap dance on her desk if she wanted me to. Although I’m pretty sure everyone in prison would be Willie Nelson’s BFF.
