Fiona Apple at Bowery Ballroom in March (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Fiona Apple

TMZ reports that Fiona Apple was arrested in Texas yesterday (9/19) for possession of hash. She's currently beind held at Hudspeth County Jail.

If all goes well, Fiona will return to the NYC area for multiple shows in October. Meanwhile she's scheduled to play the Moody Theater in Austin tonight. UPDATE: Tonight's show is sadly postponed

Free Fiona! UPDATE: she is actually free at least.

Apple spent the night in the Hudspeth County Jail, and was ordered released this afternoon on $11,000 bond.

Apple was arrested at the same checkpoint where Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and 'J. Edgar' actor Armie Hammer were arrested on similar charges. What does Dean-Walker think of all of the celebrities being arrested in her remote county, which is in the Big Bend between San Antonio and El Paso?

"I think the reason we're catching so many celebrities there is they are going through there with stuff they shouldn't have," she said. [WOAI]
Legalize it!

You can see her mugshot, via TMZ, below...

Great News! Yet so shocking. I mean from the looks of her these days you would never think she is a drug user.

I especially like the educational part of the TMZ report: hash is ā€a strong form of cannabisā€... What a generation of dummies.

"She's currently beind held"?


wtf, she doesn't have anyone to bail her out?

She has Tori Amos Syndrome (aka Anne Heche Syndrome) - had it ever since she became well-known.

That's when you purposely act out and do "weird" things or act "weird", because you CONSTANTLY feel you haven't been given ENOUGH attention, even though you have WELL enough of it.

Yea, as much as "legalize it maan!" hippies AND libertarians annoy me, it is kind of surreal that you can do serious time in prison for having a plant...

Posted by Nina Pie | September 20, 2012 4:35 PM

The comments on here are unbelievable. "Turn to drugs"? She's a musician, and smokes pot like many many other professional musicians do. Nothing to worry about.

I wonder how much overtime you Texas taxpayers are paying for this ever present checkpoint. At least your money is keeping criminals like fiona apple and willie nelson off the streets.

In California, nothing would have happened, as long as she had her card. With so many morbidly obese people, you'd think the entire population suffered from the munchies.

We need a new investigation into 9/11.. enough with the war on marijuana, the only plant known to be a cancer cure.

It's a joke the founding fathers grew it.

Posted by jowie | September 20, 2012 6:11 PM

There are many plant extracts used to treat cancer. Look up the Pacific yew tree/Tamoxifen, for instance.

But yeah, they should totally legalize weed. It's just a matter of time.

I have been through the Sierra Blanca checkpoint many times, and I have no idea why anyone would get within half a mile of it with anything the least bit hinky. Those guys, and their digs, are sitting out there in Bumfuck Nowhere with nothing else to do but take vehicles apart.

On the plus side, the Hudspeth County Jail is pretty nice. They take good care of their guests, no stabbing or bathroom unpleasantness, and the food is not bad. However, be warned, they wouldn't let me order a pizza, even with my own money and a promose to share with the jailers.

Posted by Inkslave | September 20, 2012 11:10 PM

She is perfect in every way. The police are lacking a real job if all they can do is squeeze ridiculous amounts of money out of celebrities for hash. Let me get back to her being perfect in every way. She is in NO way trying to be weird for attention.There are an abundance of crazy things she could do for attention. She possesses the balls to truly be herself, not so many of could claim the same. her weight is perfect. her judgement is perfect. her creativity is perfect. fuck all of you pathetic losers who have nothing better to do than to anonymously insult pure talent on the internet.

European here! I hope half of you guys are being sarcastic! Turned to drugs? Doesn't look like a drug user? Has your government really mind fucked you so severely that you think cannabis and hash are hard drugs? Alcohol and Tobacco are both more damaging, short term and long term, than Marijuana! Shiiit I thought we had some idiots in the UK but jheez!

Marijuana is not safe.
Propaganda goes both ways...
It has many negative health effects that are well documented, however, i advocate full legalization of all drugs. Especially opiates.
