Fiona Apple

ADMITTED Drugs Were Hers ... Cops Say

EXCLUSIVE

0920_fiona_apple_03
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.

During her incarceration, Apple made fellow

Waste of our tax dollars. If she had this in meth or coke, then it's a different story, but a little weed? C'mon!

Perhaps, her profound intergrity as an -true- Artist, runs much deeper than most.
Big-up, Ms. Apple.

This is absolutely the funniest thing I have ever read on here. How many heads out there would love to have your dd give you .01 (about an eighth) and it be the size of a baseball? Maybe TMZ gets hooked up with really good count from their dealers! Lol! Side note, feel like I just gave up too much info about myself! Lol! Seriously tho, maybe I should move to Cali. I mean, u know, if I did that sort of thing! :)

Seriously?? All of this for an 1/8 of pot.. TOTAL!!! WOW, I think they should focus their efforts in Texas on more pressing matters! Unless the only thing they can catch is a parked tour bus, then good job guys.. morons..

Laughed when I read this. B/c Sierra Blanca is FAMOUS and a permanent FIXTURE on I-10!!! So her tour manager and the bus driver were a "fail" on this one. Curious: there's no "profiling" allowed by TSA at airports -- but this is PROFILE DELUXE at this checkpoint! Super nice cops -- but when they chat u up about "are you going on a vacation somewhere?" they're really determining if you're transporting illegal drugs or people. No Excuse.

No kidding?

She looks like she belongs on the Faces of Meth site.

Fiona is the reason some celebrities are becoming no better than used toilet paper. They are clean at first and and everybody needs it. But after awhile they smell like sh-t and should be flushed.

The cops find that little amount, in a backpack, and Apple says it's hers. Hmmm, that's all they found and the star of the shows steps forward. On that whole bus. She's the one carrying. Something doesn't smell right here. Hope she wasn't being a hero.

As for the size TMZ quotes, don't you guys do math? Google - 0.01 pounds is how many ounces? Answer - 0.16 ounces. A little more than an eighth of an ounce. If either of those are baseball sized portions, I'm moving to LA tomorrow.

She's a dangerous criminal! I'm so glad that they put her in jail! Let's reinstate prohibition and then we can put all of the people who unwind with a couple of beers in jail too - those dirty criminals!!! Taxpayer money well spent! Don't waste it on education, environmental protection or protecting human rights - lock them up and throw away the key!

Amateurs. Next time google for "United States Border Patrol Interior Checkpoints" before planning your route.


Still cool of her to not be intimidated.

Texas needs to realize it hasn't been its own country for over 150 years. They can't just go around setting up border crossing checkpoints for people coming in from other states.
