The Fiona Apple arrest story continues to get better and better.
First, the singer was booked on charges of hashish possession in Texas last week. Not a huge deal, right?
But then she went off on a bizarre public rant regarding the incident (below), telling concert goers she'll make the arresting officers "f-cking famous" as a punishment for their actions.
Now Rusty Fleming - the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer - has penned a letter to Apple in which he absolutely, positively lays into the artist.
"First, Honey, I’m already more famous than you, I don’t need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine," Fleming writes, adding:
"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.”
Fiona Apple? OWNED.
