I bet your last court date didn’t go this easy.
As we reported a few months ago, [lastfm link_type=””]Willie Nelson [/lastfm]was busted for having possesion of “mary jane.” I was just as shocked as you.
Hudspeth County Attorney Kit Bramblett recommended that instead of Nelson settling his case by mail, as is typical procedure for these types of cases, the legendary singer appear in court and belt out his best version of “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.”
For real. Bramblett—who, as it turns out, is quite the character—thinks that the courtroom crooning would satisfy community service for the misdeed.
“I am aware that he has been known to use pot for many years,” Bramblett told the Washington Post. “I also know that Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson used to go out after supper and smoke a line of hemp and that’s what marijuana’s made out of.”
