(Newser) – Apparently, Willie Nelson still enjoys the occasional doobie. The country music star was arrested—right out of his tour bus—at a border patrol checkpoint in Texas yesterday for possessing 6 ounces of marijuana, KVIA reports. He was booked in county jail but later freed on bond. This is just the latest of several run-ins with the law Nelson’s entourage has had, including a citation earlier this year at the very same checkpoint.
