Parsley, Sage, Rosemary And ... Pot: Art Garfunkel Busted

Folk singer charged with possession after search of his limo.

Art Garfunkel can add one more herb to the pungent foursome "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme" that he and partner Paul Simon sang about in the '60s.

The 62-year-old singer, one half of folk duo Simon and Garfunkel, was busted for pot, according to a New York State Police spokesperson. Garfunkel was riding alone in a limousine when a state trooper pulled the vehicle over for speeding at 12:20 p.m. on Saturday in Hurley, New York, 55 miles southwest of Albany. The officer claimed he smelled marijuana inside the car, and while searching the vehicle, the driver and Garfunkel, found a small amount of pot in the singer's jacket pocket.

Garfunkel, a Manhattan resident, was charged with possession of marijuana and faces a $100 fine, unless he has had a conviction within the past three years, in which case a more severe penalty is possible. A court date is scheduled for Wednesday, though Garfunkel is not required to appear in person. He could respond by mail or have a lawyer appear in his place.

Simon and Garfunkel released five albums during their six-year recording career, which began with 1964's Wednesday Morning, 3 AM. "The Sounds of Silence," "Scarborough Fair," "The Boxer," "Mrs. Robinson," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" are among their biggest hits. After the two separated, Garfunkel recorded several albums as a solo artist.

The pair, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, wrapped up a U.S. tour last month. It was their first outing together in 20 years.
