Willie Nelson's Son

Police in Ohio got a tip that someone on Willie Nelson's son's tour bus was carrying drugs yesterday ... but here's the shocking part -- IT WASN'T WILLIE NELSON'S SON!!!

Turns out, Willie's 22-year-old kid Lukas Nelson is also a musician -- and yesterday his band was stopped in Ohio when local police got a tip that someone on the bus was in possession of some weed.

Centerville Police Department Officer Matt Dunn tells TMZ ... a drug sniffing dog was sent to the scene and tipped off police to a suspect ... a member of Lukas' band.

Cops say the band member had a small amount of weed in his possession and he was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

As for Lukas -- dude was squeaky clean ... and after cops hauled away the band member, Lukas and his posse were sent on their way.

Lukas' dad wasn't so lucky when cops found weed on Willie's tour bus in Texas last year -- because Willie was arrested ... and the case is still ongoing.

You know the cops are going to be checking just about any musician's tour bus, yet they STILL have dope on 'em! Are you guys really THAT stupid? You deserve to get caught.

Oh my god! Somebody had a little bit of weed. Get over it cops and realize how ridiculously stupid it is to enforce dated weed laws. Who cares. Quit wasting tax payers money on this nonsense.

I'm sure the band member knows the snitch who gave him up to the cops and, hopefully, his mary jane smoking keeps him very mellow because I'm sure he's pretty pissed right now.

A little bit silly if you ask me. Sounds like a disgruntled ex girlfriend was hoping for some revenge.

Texas isn't pushing the prosecution against his father, Ohio thought they'd get a headline arrest (or someone able to buy their way out and help department funding).

Instead they got some backup musician from a band that hasn't even recorded a CD yet so he probably has nothing.
