Singer-songwriter Fiona Apple was arrested for hashish possession at a West Texas Border Patrol checkpoint after a drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana in her tour bus.

Hudspeth County sheriff's office spokesman Rusty Fleming told the Associated Press on Thursday that Apple spent Wednesday night in the county jail in Sierra Blanca. Apple was released Thursday after posting bail.

Country singer Willie Nelson, rapper Snoop Dogg and actor Armand "Armie" Hammer also have been arrested in Sierra Blanca on marijuana charges.
