Here’s a warning to celebrities from the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Department: Don’t Mess With Texas.
“Celebrities are going to get busted if they come through here with drugs,” Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Rusty Fleming tells RumorFix exclusively.
Rusty is responding to a rash of stars being arrested in the tiny town of Sierra Blanca, Texas for drugs.”In Texas, we have zero tolerance,” he says. “It’s no joke.”
Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and now J. Edgar’s Armie Hammer have all been stopped at the Border Patrol checkpoint that has 18 drug-sniffing dogs at the ready.
RumorFix has confirmed that on November 20, 2011, Armie Hammer, that hunk who played the Winklevoss twins in Social Network, was arrested at about 1:20 a.m. when a canine with a sensitive nose found one glass container with .02 lbs of marijuana, three pot cookies and one pot brownie.
By the way, Armie was driving a 2006 Ford U-Haul moving truck.
The sheriff’s department says Armie (aka Armand Douglas Hammer) “freely admitted that the marijuana and food items belongs to him” and was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana, which is a felon in Texas. He spent the night in jail and paid a $1,000 fine. We understand prosecutors are dropping the case because of the minor amount of drugs found.
