Armie HammerArmie Hammer recently spent a night in a Texas jail after he was found in possession of marijuana.
 
The actor was driving through a border patrol checkpoint in Texas on November 30 when a sniffer dog alerted cops to a small drug stash in his car. A search of the vehicle also turned up one brownie and three cookies laced with medical marijuana.
 
Hammer was arrested and held in custody overnight. He was released after paying a $1,000 bond.
 
The star escaped prosecution by the El Paso District Attorney because the 0.02 ounces of pot discovered did not qualify for a felony. The case has since been passed on to the local sheriff's office, although no charges had been filed as WENN went to press.
 
News of Hammer's arrest only emerged on Wednesday.
