Fiona Apple

ADMITTED Drugs Were Hers ... Cops Say

EXCLUSIVE

Fiona Apple "freely admitted" the hash and the weed on her tour bus belonged to her when cops discovered the drugs last night ... so says the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office.

Cops say .... Apple's 2004 tour bus entered the U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, TX around 8 PM on Sept. 19 and officers performed a "routine" check of the vehicle.

During the sweep, officers used drug-sniffing dogs ... which detected the presence of narcotics in a blue backpack.

Cops say the backpack contained a glass container with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hash.

For all of you squares law-abiders unfamiliar with drug weight -- the weed is equivalent to the size of a baseball ... and the hash is equivalent to the size of a golf ball.

Cops say Apple "freely admitted" the drugs were hers and she was placed under arrest.

According to police, Apple spent the night in jail -- and was released earlier today on $10,000 bond.

She didn't have a groupie that she could have blamed? That's crazy! There was no shrooms or acid? Let her go!

Weed-sniffing house dogs would be good for those times when you forget where you hid your stash

funny how you boneheads "explain" the quantities and fail miserably. just FYI (see if you can follow):
1 pound is 454g
0.01 pounds is (wait for it) 4.54g,
which is about an eigth... nowhere close to "baseball" sized, even for weed. hash is, needless to say, much more dense, and 4.54g of that would be a cube about the size of a postage stamp.
way to go.

Because it's much more dangerous for someone to drive you around on a bus while you light up instead of hitting it behind the wheel. Oh wait...

Musicians should just stay out of Texas when they are on tour. That would send a message.

My lord TMZ. .01 pound of weed is nothing close to a baseball. Thats barely more than a freakn 1/8. If you are going to educate people, the very least you can do is educate yourself first.
