Supermodel Gigi Hadid got arrested by customs officials of the Cayman Islands over possession of marijuana and items needed to smoke it in her luggage on 10th July. The officials then take her and her friend to the Prisoner Detention Center, where she gets released on bail.

Gigi Hadid arrived in the Cayman Islands along with her friend on a private plane on vacation when the incident took place. The officials found marijuana in their luggage which led to their suspicion about the importation of marijuana.

But Hadid's representative told a news outlet, "Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in New York City with a medical license," and the representative added, "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."

On 12th July, two days after the arrest, Hadid and her friend appeared in front of the court and pleaded guilty to "suspicion of importation of ganja and importation of utensils used for the consumption of ganja." They were fined 1000 dollars each, which they paid.

No other additional charges were put on them due to having only small quantities of the substance, which was for personal use. The model did get attention and scrutiny at this unexpected incident, but she continues to enjoy her holidays without any other hindrance by the look of it.

The model has shared images from her vacation on her Instagram handle, along with videos of her dancing with her friend on her social media account. From the look of it, the legal setback did not ruin the vacation of the model, and she remains unphased.

Gigi Hadid was last seen in April attending the grand opening of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre in Mumbai, where she was seen dancing with Bollywood stars and having a gala time.
