Sittin Sidewayz: Paul Wall Busted For Pot In El Paso

Paul Wall followed in the footsteps of his outlaw country heroes over the weekend... all the way to jail.

Wall, fellow Houston rapper Baby Bash ("Suga Suga") and producer BiggRoy were arrested early Sunday on suspicion of possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana, Billboard reported this morning via the El Paso Times. The trio were nabbed within a "drug-free zone," which if Rocks Off's knowledge of current state law is correct, would be anywhere within the El Paso city limits or the rest of the state of Texas.

Wall and Bash were in El Paso to perform at the 2011 Summer Jam concert, and were arrested about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Times. Wall seemed to be taking his time in lockup in stride, however. Besides tweeting the above photo of his handcuffed self, he remarked he had been held in the "same tank they held Willie Nelson/Johnny Cash."

The trio were released after paying a $300 bond Sunday afternoon. Later on, Wall tweeted about the story's appearance on TMZ and the Houston Texans' victory.
