    According to a report from Austin's KXAN-TV, Willie Nelson was arrested early Friday morning for misdemeanor marijuana possession in West Texas.

    Police boarded his tour bus with drug sniffing dogs who alerted officials that there was something on board.

    A search revealed the pot and Nelson was arrested, according to KXAN.  He later posted a $2,500 bond and continued east toward Austin.

    Nelson was reportedly heading to Austin from a recent show in California.
