Submission + - George "geohot" Hotz arrested for Posession of Marijuana (

n1ywb writes: Goerge "geohot" Hotz, famous for being the first to jailbrake and iPhone and for his spat with Sony over PS3 jailbraking, was busted for posession of a small amount of marijuana at a US Border Patrol checkpoint in Texas on his way to SXSW. The shakedown goes like this; drug dogs are run around vehicles; when they sign, DHS searches the car and finds the contraband; DHS then turns evidence and suspects over to the local sherrif. Willie Nelson, actor Armie Hammer (who played the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network), and Snoop Dogg have all gotten in trouble at the same checkpoint under similar circumstances.
