Free Willie

Country music star Willie Nelson and his tour manager were spared jail time Tuesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.

Nelson, his sister Bobbie, his tour manager and two drivers were issued citations last September 18th after state troopers said they found marijuana and mushrooms on his tour bus during a commercial vehicle inspection on Interstate 10.

A district judge fined Nelson and tour manager David Anderson one-thousand-24 dollars each. He also gave both on six months probation.

As part of a plea agreement, the citation against Nelson’s sister was dismissed.

The 73-year-old Nelson had performed in Montgomery a day earlier during a birthday celebration for the late Hank Williams.
