Gigi Hadid released after being arrested for marijuana in the Cayman Islands

Gigi Hadid had a bumpy start to her summer vacation.

The supermodel was embarking on a girls’ trip to the Cayman Islands on July 10 when she was arrested at Owen Roberts International Airport, E! News has learned.

According to local outlet Cayman Marl Road, shortly after Hadid and her boyfriend arrived on a private plane, customs officials allegedly found “ganja and utensils used for ganja consumption” in their luggage.

Hadid and her friend were later arrested on “suspicion of importing ganja and importing utensils used for ganja consumption”, 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 boyfriend were formally charged in a court appearance, where they pleaded guilty and were both fined $1,000, according to Cayman Marl Road. They face no charges.

“Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in New York City with a medical license,” her rep told E! News. “It has also been legal for medical use on Grand Cayman since 2017. Her case remains clear and she has enjoyed the rest of her time on the island.”

E ! News contacted authorities and received no response.
