UPDATE 2/2/2012: Basically the hotness that is Armie Hammer tells TMZ, “Don’t Mess With Texas!” Moreover the Lone Ranger star says he’ll fully dish on the baked goods debacle that landed him under arrest near the Mexican border last November when his 90 day gag won’t threaten his legal defenses…Ride ‘em cowboy.
Come to find out this past November The Social Network breakout spent approximately one full day in a Texas jail before posting his $1,000 bail, after a “crack” K-9 detective sniffed out the presence of marijuana in his vehicle.
According to the AP, arrest records show that Hammer had 0.02 ounces of marijuana, three medicinal marijuana cookies and one brownie when arrested Nov. 20 in Sierra Blanca, a few miles from the Mexican border (approx. 100 mi. from NM).
It is also being reported that El Paso’s district attorney will not prosecute because a felony requires more than 4 ounces of actual marijuana.
The county attorney could pursue lesser charges, since the case is going back to the local sheriff, but Hammer’s lawyer Kent Schaffer says no charges have been presented.
Hammer joins Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg in being busted on pot charges in the same Texas town.
Cigarettes and Alcohol remain legal.
