According to TMZ, Fiona Apple was arrested yesterday at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, TX for possession of hashish. Authorities allegedly found the substance on her tour bus and she is currently being held at Hudspeth County Jail in Texas. Whoa. We’ll update as more comes in.

UPDATE: TMZ now has the mug shot and more details from the arrest:

Cops say …. Apple’s 2004 tour bus entered the U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, TX around 8 PM on Sept. 19 and officers performed a “routine” check of the vehicle.

During the sweep, officers used drug-sniffing dogs … which detected the presence of narcotics in a blue backpack.

Cops say the backpack contained a glass container with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hash.

For all of you squares law-abiders unfamiliar with drug weight — the weed is equivalent to the size of a baseball … and the hash is equivalent to the size of a golf ball.

Cops say Apple “freely admitted” the drugs were hers and she was placed under arrest.

According to police, Apple spent the night in jail — and was released earlier today on $10,000 bond.
