Willie Nelson busted for six ounces of marijuana in Texas-Mexico border town, posts $2500 bail

Willie Nelson may have gotten beer for his horses, but he allegedly got weed for his men, Border patrol agents said Friday.

The country music legend was arrested Friday morning in a Texas border town with six ounces of marijuana, ABC local station KVIA reported.

He was put in the slammer before posting the $2,500 bond shortly afterwards and then heading to Austin, Texas, where he'll be performing at the Austin City Limits Live concert in February.

It's not the first time Nelson has been charged for drug possession.

In 2006, he was busted with a pound-and-a-half of weed and mushrooms and charged with a misdemeanor. He was slapped with a fine and six months' probation from that arrest.

It never seemed like that did much to reform him - he later posed for High Times magazine.

Nelson's new album "Country Music" was released in April.

He's expected to put out another album in May of 2011. The 77-year-old didn't address the arrest on his tour blog or Twitter.
