Fiona Apple

ARRESTED

for Hash in Texas

EXCLUSIVE

Fiona Apple mug shot
All she needs is a good defense ...

Fiona Apple was arrested at a border stop in Texas yesterday ... after authorities claim they found hashish on the "Criminal" singer's tour bus ... TMZ has learned.

It all went down in Sierra Blanca, TX -- where stars like Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Armie Hammer have all been arrested for drugs in the past. 

But apparently, Apple didn't learn from their mistakes ... and when her bus was stopped for inspection, cops turned up the hash -- a strong form of cannabis.

Cops say Apple was also in possession of a small amount of weed.

The 35-year-old singer was arrested for possession and is currently being held at Hudspeth County Jail.

Story developing ...

Hello Idiots! Just because you dont hear Fiona on the radio doesnt mean she has fallen off the face of the Earth and is a one hit wonder! She came with an AWESOME this year (which is her 4th)! Expand your horizons a little bit!..... I hope she can get this cleared up. This is so stupid!

On what grounds was the bus inspected? Wouldn't the authorities need a search warrant?

Apparently, people in the music business do not read the news. Everyone and their dog has been stopped and arrested at this checkpoint. If you are in a tour bus, you are target number one. Talk about stooopid!

This is a Border Patrol checkpoint and is FAR from the actual border. Been through there many times. They have lots of drug-sniffing dogs. Should be careful when you go through there.....

Friggin' Texas. What's their effing problem? They LOVE to arrest people (and execute them). I will never set foot in that state. Why is anybody being arrested anymore for possession of personal amounts of marijuana in the USA? What a disgusting waste of resources, tax dollars and time. Spend the money catching real criminals you clowns. Like bank execs who steal millions of hard working people's money.

Pretentious media whore. The new album must not be selling too well. There's nothing wrong with that girl, she doesn't eat because she wants attention. I like her music, but things like this are a turn off. I'd like her more if she'd stop pretending she's so deep. Behave yourself and follow the law.
