Dierks Bentley has toured all over the world with his brand of country music and usually, he flies his own plane or is on a tour bus, but the one time he wasn’t, he got pulled over in Arkansas. As Dierks was coming back from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, a state trooper in Arkansas pulled him over because, “Well, we smelled marijuana as you drove by…”
And as Dierks shared, the story only got stranger from there, “I thought it was the strangest thing… we’re just coming back from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and then two more cars came and they’ve got the dogs all over the cars and he starts asking me if I’ve ever seen the inside of an Arkansas state prison. The dog starts sniffing one of my tires, going crazy over my rear tire. It was the most bizarre thing. After about an hour-and-a-half they let us go.”
We’re glad they let him go, but thankful for this story.
