Grammy-winning singer Fiona Apple was arrested late Wednesday on a felony drug possession charge at a border patrol checkpoint where her tour bus was searched, according to the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office.
Apple, 35, was taken into custody in Sierra Blanca, the same small Texas town where officials previously arrested Paul Wall, Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg on drug charges.
The singer had 4 grams of hashish, a form of cannabis, in her possession and admitted it was hers when she was arrested, according to TMZ.com.
Asked why so many celebrities have been arrested in the town on Interstate 10, County Judge Becky Dean-Walker said, “because they come through here with stuff they shouldn’t have”.
The Interstate 10 highway runs coast-to-coast across the United States between California and Florida.
