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 ...

I live in Sierra Blanca Tx, have going on 4 years now. Previously lived in Florida Keys for 25 years before then. World of difference and not just the climate. Nice little town like where I grew up in N Wis. No local seems to get tickets from local deputies unless they do something realy stupid, due to fact that most people are related to someone who works for Sheriff. I like that alot most places the cops are pretty much revenue raises, like the state of Wis. I get stopped everytime I go back for visit, probably because of out of state tags. The check point is a big money producer for county. I work at towing company and have helped to bring a few vehicles in to police impound, runs around 250 per vehicle, 450 for semis. I own 30 acres my property taxes run about 100 for year and if I ever get around to building a house on property I don't need permits, they would like me to install a septic system buts thats no biggie. Very friendly little town split in two by I-10, I usually bypass the checkpoint by getting off on exit before checkpoint and taking frontage road into town, they do have border patrol sitting in cars on frontage road and non locals may get pulled over and asked if they are citizens but thats quicker than waiting at checkpoint as it can get backed up sometimes. If your local they get to know local vehicles by sight, and I only occasionally get stopped by new officers as they keep changing.
