EL PASO, Texas — Singer-songwriter Fiona Apple is expected to keep a Saturday concert date in Oklahoma despite her arrest Wednesday night on drug complaints at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Apple was arrested on a complaint of hashish possession after a Border Patrol drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana in her tour bus.
Hudspeth County sheriff's office spokesman Rusty Flemming said Apple spent Wednesday night in the county jail and was released Thursday on a $10,000 bond.
Flemming said Apple “had a little tiny amount of pot and hash.” Flemming said marijuana possession in small amounts is a misdemeanor, while hashish possession in any quantity is a felony in Texas.
Apple's publicist, Ambrosia Healy, didn't immediately respond to an email request for comment.
Shaundra Blundell, spokeswoman for WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, said that Apple's Saturday concert is still on schedule until further notice.
The Sierra Blanca checkpoint inspects thousands of vehicles daily and sends the town thousands of drug cases yearly. Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and actor Armie Hammer all have been arrested at Sierra Blanca for marijuana.
