30 Jan 2012 - In Texas, Sierra Blanca is turning into a hotspot for celeb cannabis busts. The most recent addition to Hudspeth County Jail's 'VIP guest list' is actor Armie Hammer, who starred in 'The Social Network' and more recently played alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 'J. Edgar'. Hammer was arrested last November at the Sierra Blanca border patrol checkpoint after a drug sniffing dog discovered marijuana in his car.
A year prior to Hammer's arrest, in November 2010, Willie Nelson was arrested on his tourbus with six ounces of marijuana at the same checkpoint. Snoop Dogg was busted earlier this month when a drug dog sniffed out 13 pounds of marijuana on his tour bus. Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and actor Armie Hammer have been among the thousands of people busted for possession at a Border Patrol checkpoint outside town in recent years, bringing a bit of notoriety to one of Texas' most sparsely populated counties.
