Art Garfunkel Busted

HURLEY, N.Y. (AP) _ Art Garfunkel, part of the folk music duo Simon and Garfunkel, was charged with marijuana possession after police pulled his limousine over for speeding in upstate New York

Garfunkel, 62, had a small amount of marijuana in his jacket pocket when a state trooper stopped the limo Saturday afternoon in Hurley, 55 miles southwest of Albany, the Daily Freeman of Kingston reported.

The trooper smelled marijuana after approaching the vehicle, in which Garfunkel was the lone passenger

Garfunkel, of Manhattan, was scheduled to appear in court on Jan_ 28 on the charge, which carries a possible $100 fine, or he could respond by mail.

A representative for Legacy Recording, Garfunkel's New York-based record label, did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday.

Garfunkel completed a U.S. concert tour with Paul Simon last fall, their first in 20 years . The duo, who have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, produced a string of hits in the 1960s, including "The Sounds of Silence," "Mrs. Robinson," "Old Friends" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song ( Feelin' Groovy)."
