Free Willie II

Remember last year, when Willie Nelson’s tour bus got pulled over and there was a problem? There may yet be a solution.

On the one hand, YAY:

“You can bet your ass I’m not going to be mean to Willie Nelson,” Hudspeth County Attorney C.R. “Kit” Bramblett told CNN Monday, confirming his plea recommendation.

No court date is set, but Bramblett said he would recommend a plea deal for Nelson that includes the legendary country artist singing his 1975 hit “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.” The courtroom performance would serve as his community service, he said.

And also:

Bramblett joked that while Nelson was initially charged with possession of six ounces of pot, which would put the case out of his jurisdiction, he and the sheriff smoked or threw out enough to bring it into his jurisdiction.

But then again, BOOOO:

The final decision, though, will be in the hands of Judge Becky Dean-Walker, who seemed irritated by media reports Monday concerning the proposed plea deal.

“My court is not a jester court,” Judge Dean-Walker said. “I understand that people are star stuck, I’m not one of them.”

Like, okay, selective justice is totally not fair and all that, but couldn’t she just get him to promise not to make any more reggae albums or something?
