Talk about your bad apples! Fiona Apple (who is not Alanis Morissette) has been arrested. The “Criminal” singer was pulled aside at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas where police searched her tour bus and found hashish. The small West Texas town is notorious for hip hemper busts having previously arrested popular puffers Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson. (“Welcome to Sierra Blanca, where we’re totally not cool dude.”)
The 35-year-old Fiona was arrested on the spot and taken to the Hudspeth County Jail where she remains in custody. And judging from her mug shot photo above, we’d say poor Fiona was probaby asleep when this all went down! It’s just like Katt Williams always says, “hungry, happy, sleepy!”
For all of you non-drug experts, hashish is a strong form of cannabis. Hash, as it is often called, is much more produced than cannabis which has simply been dried. Hash is created from the sticky resin of the cannabis plant, which makes it much more potent, and users get a more intense high as a result. In other words, Fiona had the good stuff.
Just a couple weeks ago, Fiona embarked on her North American tour which began in Costa Mesa, California. From there she had a few stops on her way to Texas including a gig at Las Vegas’ The Joint — imagine that.
Fiona is expected to be in Austin, Texas’ ACL Live at 8:00pm tonight for a performance, so someone should probably wake her up.
Until then, here’s a little sage wisdom from fellow Sierra Blanca victims, Willie Nelson and Snoop
