    FILE - This March 14, 2012 file photo shows Fiona Apple performing at the NPR showcase during the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Apple has been arrested for hashish possession at a West Texas town after a Border Patrol drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana in her tour bus. Sierra Blanca Sheriff's office spokesman Rusty Flemming says the artist spent Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Hudspeth County jail and would be bonded out Thursday. Fleming says Apple "had a little tiny amount of pot and hash." Fleming says marijuana possession in small amounts is a misdemeanor, while hashish in any quantity is a felony in Texas.
