Sierra Blanca - A US Border Patrol spokesperson says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after the drug was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Patrol spokesperson Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 09:00 on Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn't immediately return a phone message left at his home on Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly on a $2 500 bond before being released.

Nelson's spokesperson Elaine Schock declined to comment when contacted via e-mail by The Associated Press.
