New York: Willie Nelson has been arrested with six ounces of marijuana in a Texas-Mexico border town.

According to ABC local station KVIA, the country music legend was put in the slammer before posting the 2,500 dollars bond shortly afterwards and then heading to Austin, where he’ll be performing at the Austin City Limits Live concert in February, reported the New York Daily News.

However, it’s not the first time Nelson has been charged for drug possession.

In 2006, he was busted with a pound-and-a-half of weed and mushrooms and charged with a misdemeanour.

Nelson’s new album ``Country Music`` was released in April, this year.
