Garza and his wife Lenora were booked on $1,000 bail yesterday morning and released shortly after, according to jail records.
Authorities said the search was conducted after two women filed a police report a day earlier after a night of drinking at the couple's home. The women filed the report at a hospital. Further information about the report wasn't available.
Garza and his wife each face a misdemeanor charge of possession of less than two ounces of marijuana.
"Ringo and his wife would never do anything like what is being said about them," Los Lonely Boys manager Kevin Wommack told the San Angelo Standard-Times. "We have faith that the people of San Angelo, the courts, the prosecutors and the jury will be fair in this matter."
The arrest was the drummer's second for possession of marijuana. He pleaded no contest to a similar charge in 2003.
