Legendary 73 year old country singer Willie Nelson and four members from his band were charged with drug possession when police in Lafayette, Louisiana stopped his tour bus and found marijuana and magic mushrooms. Everyone on the bus claimed it was their stash and all of them were charged with misdemeanors.
In 2010 police in Texas would also raid Nelson's bus, eventually resulting in similar misdemeanor charges.
Also, on this date in 1970 Jimi Hendrix died after choking on his own vomit.
