In the tweets, Feldman classified the arrests as a "a bit of a good ol' shakedown" and said that, after the fines were paid in cash, officers asked for pictures and autographs and then contacted the local newspaper for interviews. 

Police Chief Perry Fleming told The News-Star that Feldman, 46, was driving under suspension. After Feldman was transported to the police department, the arresting officer noticed the scent of marijuana and searched the recreation vehicle.

Four other members of Feldman's group were booked into the Richland Parish Jail on other drug charges, Fleming said. All were able to post bond and secure release overnight.

Hi

Feldman's security guard, Emanuel I. Speal III, 42, was also able to pay a fine of $590 on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Feldman said he did not have drugs on his person but was charged because it was his bus. He said no illegal or street drugs were found on the bus, and the group was told all charges could be dropped with proof of proper prescriptions. He said the medicines were legal but did not have their particular bottles.

Feldman also said he found the timing of the arrest ironic and that his band would be traveling to Houston to perform their next show. Full copies of his tweets are embedded below.
