BODY:
Rock star John Graham McVie and his wife, Julie Ann, are free on bail after being charged by police with possession of cocaine.

McVie, 35, a member of the group Fleetwood Mac, and his 29-year-old wife were arrested two weeks ago after police, acting on a tip from Honolulu authorities, allegedly found 4.5 grams of cocaine, a small amount of marijuana and several guns at the couple's home on Maui.

They are to be arraigned Jan. 16 on charges of possession of cocaine. Mrs. McVie is also charged with hindering prosecution by allegedly attempting to destroy evidence. McVie's bail was set at $1,000 and his wife's at $1,500.

McVie, a British citizen, could face deportation proceedings if convicted.
