While driving across Arkansas to a Dallas,Texas, gig in 1975, Rolling Stones members Keith Richards and Ron Wood, along with two friends, stopped at a Fordyce (Dallas County) restaurant. Shortly after leaving, Richards was pulled over for reckless driving. The officers, believing they detected the smell of marijuana, searched the car and found a small amount of cocaine and a hunting knife. Richards was only cited for carrying an illegal weapon; he posted bond and was released. This publicity photo was taken at the Alamo in Texas during the same 1975 tour, about a month before the incident.
