It looks like Fiona Apple may have come up against someone who isn't going to put up with her comments and criticisms.
The singer was arrested last Friday in Hudspeth County, TX after hashish and marijuana were found on her tour bus. Three nights later, she went on a lengthy diatribe about the arrest and her time in jail at a Houston show that seemed to imply some sort of abuse took place at the hands of four people.
Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department public affairs officer, Rusty Fleming, has responded to Apple's arrest and allegations in a letter that was received by TMZ.
First, Honey, I'm already more famous than you, I don't need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine.
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."
