(Newser) – Fiona Apple didn't learn Willie Nelson's lesson. The singer-songwriter had to spend the night in jail in Sierra Blanca, Texas, because an inspection of her tour bus yesterday turned up what police say was a "tiny amount of pot and hash," reports AP. The problem is any quantity of hash is a felony in Texas, while small amounts of pot is a misdemeanor. The Sierra Blanca checkpoint is notorious, with Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Armand Hammer all getting arrested there in years past, reports TMZ.
