Fiona Apple was arrested at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas yesterday after authorities reportedly found hashish in her tour bus.
Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the "Criminal" singer was arrested, and police also say Apple was also in possession of a small amount of marijuana.
The 35-year-old star was arrested for possession and is currently being held at Hudspeth County Jail, and she's scheduled to perform at the Austin City Limits Live at Moody Theater on Thursday night -- no word on whether the show is still on. Apple is currently on tour to promote her latest album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.
Fun fact: Sierra Blanca is the same spot where both Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg were busted for drugs in the past.
UPDATE: Doug Mosier, Public Affairs Officer for El Paso Texas, tells X17online:
"The contraband was found on the person of Ms. Apple and in the bus that she was traveling at a U.S. Border Patrol traffic checkpoint on I-10, east of Ft. Hancock, Texas. She was ultimately turned over to the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Department for prosecution."
