The ASSOCIATED PRESS is reporting that Country singer JOHNNY RODRIGUEZ has been arrested on drug charges, with three felony drug counts.
RODRIGUEZ was stopped by police near OKLAHOMA CITY for speeding originally, and officers found bags of what they believed to be marijuana, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and an open container of beer in RODRIGUEZ's pickup truck. He was charged with felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and driving under the influence of drugs.
RODRIGUEZ, who had six No. 1 Country hits in the 70's, including "I Just Can't Get Her Out of My Mind," "Love Put a Song in My Heart" and "That's The Way Love Goes," will be back in court on JULY 18 for a preliminary hearing.
