Willie Nelson Arrested in St. Martin Parish

Wille Nelson and his band caught with a pound and a half of weed and some mushrooms by Louisiana State trooper.

A country music legend famous for the song, "On the Road Again" found trouble on the road in south Louisiana. Willie Nelson's tour bus was pulled over Monday morning on I-10 in St. Martin Parish and now the 73-year-old singer faces misdemeanor drug charges.

A trooper pulled over a gold tour bus near Breaux Bridge. He ordered a search of the vehicle after talking to the driver.

During the search, investigators report finding one and a half pounds of marijuana and two-tenths of a pound of mushrooms on the bus. It wasn't until later that police realized the bus belonged to Willie Nelson.
Good to see some folks living their dreams. Legalise the stuff, really.
