Fiona Apple Told To 'Shut-Up And Sing' After Hashish Arrest

HOUSTON, TX (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — After being arrested at border control in Texas last week for possession of hashish, Fiona Apple is speaking out against the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department for alleged mistreatment. She rambled in a statement at a Houston concert following the bust that she would make the cops "fucking famous" for their actions during the arrest.

The "Criminal" singer had spent a night in a Hudspeth County Jail after the substance was confiscated.

Well, now the police department's Public Information Officer Rusty Fleming is trying to have the last word with a personal response to the singer's accusations. The officer wrote the below letter firing back at Apple, according to TMZ.

"First, Honey, I’m already more famous than you, I don’t need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine."

"Two weeks ago nobody in the country cared about what you had to say, — now that you’ve been arrested it appears your entire career has been jump-started. Don’t worry Sweetie, I won’t bill you."

"Next, have you ever heard of Snoop, Willie or Armand Hammer? Maybe if you would read something besides your own press releases, you would have known BEFORE you got here, that if you come to Texas with dope, the cops will take your DOPE away and put YOU in jail."

"Even though you and I only met briefly in the hallway, I don’t know you but I’m sure you’re an awesome and talented young woman and even though I’m not a fan of yours, I am sure there are thousands of them out there, and I’m sure that they would just as soon you get this all behind you and let you go back to what you do best—so my last piece of advice is simple “just shut-up and sing.”

Now it is up to Fiona to make the next move, as long as it isn't over the border.
