Johnny Rodriguez Busted

Legendary singer Johnny Rodriguez has been charged with three felony drug counts.

Police pulled the singer over for speeding on Friday, June 15, in Blanchard, Okla., about 30 miles south of Oklahoma City. Officers say they found marijuana, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and an open container of beer in his pickup truck.

Johnny was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of marijuana and driving under the influence of drugs. He was released on $6,500 bail the following day, and is due to appear in court for a preliminary hearing July 18.

Johnny, 55, racked up six No. 1 hits in the early 1970s, including “That’s the Way Love Goes” and “Ridin’ My Thumb to Mexico.” He is set to be inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage, Texas, on Aug. 18.
