This has got to be a joke! Here’s a little background to this bizarre story. Willie Nelson was busted for pot possession (again) in November last year. The po-po stopped his tour bus at a check post in Louisiana after a “strong odor of marijuana was detected.” Willie’s case is in court now and apparently, the prosecutor will sic the singer with only a $100 fine on one strange condition. Willie has to sing “Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain” in court because apparently, that counts as community service these days! Lets break it down — Willie has to do what he normally does for living, in court because that’s “work” now.
Unfortunately for Willie, while the prosecutor’s clearly a fan, his courtroom performance may ultimately get him nowhere. The final decision will rest in the presiding judge’s hands and if he isn’t a fan of singing-for-freedom, then Willie faces up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
