Hoosier Cops:

There's Pot in

Bret Michaels' Bus

7/22/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Indiana cops claim they found pot and other illegal drugs in two of Bret Michaels' tour buses last night.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office tells TMZ Bret was onboard one of buses when cops made the stop at around 11:30 PM.  K9s found the pot.  One of the buses -- not the one Bret was on -- had Schedule II controlled substances inside, and cops tells us they're illegal drugs.

Citations were issued but no arrests were made.  The case is being forwarded to DeKalb prosecutors.

Michaels' rep gave us the following statement:

"Two of Bret’s tour buses were pulled over late last night. Officers on the scene claimed there were no trailer tag lights. No arrests were made. Mr. Michaels allowed an open search of the buses and everything was handled in a professional manner."

Seems like the cops saw a rock tour bus going down the road and figured it would be an easy score for them.

"Citations were issued but no arrests were made."

Really? This cannot be standard practice when it comes to illegal drugs.

okay, we get that drugs were found on two buses but why were the buses pulled over? did the cop know it was some rockers and happen to have the canines on hand??? something missing in this story. Like we're shocked that drugs and rock-n-roll are related, duhhhhh, why were they pulled over????

Shut up all you dumbasses. Pot will not kill Bret or has ever killed anyone, EVER in the history of pot no one has ever o.d'd on pot. Its probally the best medicine he could have right now after all the stuff he's been through. Couple years ago they stopped Willie Nelsons bus on the highway a couple of miles away from me and found a pound of marijuana and shrooms and guess what happend to him? Not a dam thing. When your a celebrity. You dont get in trouble for drugs most of the times but if that was me with a pound of shrooms and weed, i'd be in jail still to this day.

Pot can kill to the uninformed, in some cases it can bring on a heart attack. Pot makes one mellow, i think Mel should light up.

All those asking why the bus was pulled over. He's from Arizona. They were looking for illegal aliens.
