Willie Nelson May Have to “Sing the Blues” in Court

www.popcrunch.com

A West Texas prosecutor says that singer Willie Nelson can resolve marijuana possession charges if he agrees to plead guilty, pay a fine and sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” for the court.

County Attorney Kit Bramblett told The Associated Press Friday that he recommended those penalties to Hudspeth County’s judge Becky Dean-Walker. Bramblett says the judge specifically demanded that Nelson appear in court instead of pleading by mail, a common procedure in these cases. He also said the judge wants to meet Willie. Dean-Walker did not immediately return a call Friday.

Nelson was arrested for possession of marijuana on Nov. 26, 2010 at a Border Patrol checkpoint after an agent smelled an odor coming from the vehicle and decided to search it. He posted bail shortly after his arrest. Willie has had problems with law enforcement before because of his possession of marijuana and other drugs. No word has been released yet from the singer about the possibility of singing for the court.
