Three Degrees Of Joint Separation For Willie, Bobby And Arvin

Arvin West IMG_0223A week ago Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West (pictured) was in town for his buddy Bobby Duvall’s appearance at the Dallas Film Society‘s “The Art of Film.” During Duvall’s talk with Elvis Mitchell, Bobby mentioned how stupid movie suits were when they opted not to have Willie Nelson promote Duvall’s Tender Mercies.

The El Paso Times reported that 77-year old Willie and two others on his bus were arrested on charges of marijuana possession Friday in Hudspeth. Arvin reported that Willie said the pot was his.

According to Arvin,

“It’s kind of surprising, but, I mean, we treat him like anybody else.

“He could get 180 days in county jail, which if he does, I’m going to make him cook and clean. He can wear the stripy uniforms just like the other ones do.”

Guess Willie should have listened to Toby.
