Jimmy Buffett Gets Busted in Paradise
First Willie. Now Jimmy. French authorities reportedly seized more than 100 tabs of ecstasy from Jimmy Buffett's luggage this week. The legendary singer-songwriter was busted at Toulon-Hyères International Airport in the South of France, after customs officials rummaged through the suitcases on his private jet.
Buffett was detained but not arrested. After paying a fine of 300 Euros (about $380 U.S. dollars), he was allowed to continue on to his vacation in St. Tropez.
A spokeswoman for Buffett denies that the tablets found were illegal. She insists it was only 20 tablets of doctor-prescribed medicine but refused to elaborate.
Buffett is set to release his new album 'Take the Weather With You' next week.
