Country Singer Arrested

Country singing legend Ray Price was arrested for possession of

marijuana in Texas on March 19, according to a records clerk with the

Mount Pleasant, Texas, police. The 73-year-old singer, whose hits included

"Crazy Arms" and "Heartaches by the Number," posted a bond of $500 for

the marijuana-possession charge. He also paid a fine of $200 after

pleading no contest to one count of possessing drug paraphernalia. He

was released pending a court date for the marijuana charge; that date

has not been set, according to a municipal court clerk.
