In October 1965, Cash was arrested for being in possession of hundreds of tranquilizers and pep pills after U.S. Custom agents searched his luggage when he returned from a trip to Juarez, Mexico. After spending the night in jail, he pleaded guilty, received a 30-day sentence, and had to pay a $1,000 fine.
