Fiona Apple Busted for Hash and Weed Near the Mexican Border

Hashish will make a lady do some crazy shit.

Like give her new album a 23-word title. Say, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.

Or maybe even make a run for the Mexican border while carrying "Criminal" amounts of cannabis.

Yesterday, as reported by TMZ, Apple was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas, during a border stop.

Fiona was apparently holding "a small amount of weed." And after searching her tour bus, cops also found some hashish.

Now as Apple sits in Hudspeth County Jail, indie-rock lovin' Texans are worried that Fiona's shows in Houston and Austin are gonna get nixed.

Meanwhile, we here at Crossfade are likewise concerned that this cannabis bust might prevent the Queen of Angst from hotboxing the Fillmore next week.

Either way, Fiona's been a bad, bad girl.
