Jimmy Buffett busted with 100 ecstasy pills

Singer Jimmy Buffett was detained by French customs officers earlier this week, after they reportedly found 100 ecstasy tablets in his luggage.

The Grammy winner arrived at Toulon-Hyeres International Airport in the south of France in a private jet on his way to holiday in St Tropez when the discovery was made.

Buffett was fined $380 and was released without charge, according to
