by Josh Martin has an article up where Buffett discusses the recent incident in France: “Jimmy Buffett Putting Drug ‘bust’ In Past”

Laid-back singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett says he was both amused and frightened by his recent “drug bust” in France.

“They hauled me into the interrogation room, and I figured I was going to jail,” Buffett said. “They were not kidding around.”

The misunderstanding was cleared up and Buffett was cleared to leave the country with only a fine for not carrying his prescription. He was, however, disappointed by erroneous press reports about the incident.

“The great thing about it is I was totally innocent,” he said.

Buffett said the incident sparked some song ideas, including “Too Long in Toulon” and “Bad News Can Spoil Your Breakfast,” the latter inspired by an e-mail from Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart.
