Looks like Gigi Hadid's summer vacation did not start on a good note...

According to a report by E! News, Hadid and her friend Leah McCarthy were arrested and then released in the Cayman Islands after customs officials found marijuana in their possession.

Local media outlet Cayman Marl Road also reported that shortly after Hadid and her pal arrived via a private plane, customs officials allegedly found "ganja and utensils used for the consumption of ganja" in their luggage.

Hadid and her friend were then arrested on "suspicion of importation of ganja and importation of utensils used for the consumption of ganja," the outlet reports, adding that they were then taken to the Prisoner Detention Center, where they were released on bail.

Two days later, on July 12, Hadid and her pal were formally charged during a court appearance, where they pleaded guilty and were both fined USD 1,000 (over P54,000), according to Cayman Marl Road. They are not facing any charges.

"Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in NYC with a medical license," her rep told E! News. "It has also been legal for medical use in Grand Cayman since 2017. Her record remains clear and she enjoyed the rest of her time on the island." (ANI)
