HUMBLE, Texas -- Doug Supernaw's in trouble with the law again.

The country music singing star has been charged with misdemeanor drug possession. That's after police in the Houston suburb of Humble arrested him for allegedly having pot with him at a club Wednesday night.

He's free on $1,000 bail and faces a November 16 court date.

Supernaw scored two hits -- "Reno" and "I Don't Call Him Daddy" from his 1993 album, "Red and Rio Grande."

Supernaw had been arrested several times around the state on public intoxication and other charges, dating to 1998.

In April 2005, he was sentenced to time served in an Amarillo jail after he was convicted of misdemeanor marijuana possession. On that occasion, he'd spent 62 days in jail after his 2004 arrest at his Amarillo hotel room.

In 2003, he spent two weeks in the Brazos County Jail in Bryan for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

In 2001, he served a six-month jail term for contempt of court and failure to pay child support.
