Charlotte Crosby 'Nearly Arrested' At Dubai Airport For Carrying Sex Toy
| Last updated
Charlotte Crosby has escaped the Baltic British weather and jetted off to Dubai, the lucky sausage, but it sounds like her holiday got off to a rocky start.
The Geordie Shore star is sunning it up with her 'best friend' Adam Frisby, though she nearly didn't make it past the airport.
In an Instagram story, Frisby said their trip began with a 'stressful experience'.
He wrote: "Charlotte and I got pulled at the airport because she had a sex toy in her hand luggage.
"She nearly got arrested and we had to plead with airport security.
"I mean you couldn’t make it up! Absolute belter of a start!"
It looks like she's chilling on the beach now though, so all's well that ends well. Hopefully they let her take her sex toy through with her as well.
In all seriousness, Brits have found themselves in serious bother for possession of banned items in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Recently, a man who was sentenced to 25 years in a Dubai jail for possessing CBD vape oil had his sentence cut to 10 years following an appeal.
Billy Hood, 25, was convicted on drug trafficking with intent to supply after the oil was found in his car; but last month in an appeal court in Abu Dhabi his sentence was reduced to 10 years, after it recognised he had 'unintentionally possessed' the drugs and had 'no intent to supply', the Daily Mail reported.
The judgement was made just days after the UAE announced it would be introducing new laws that would allow first-offender foreigners caught with drugs to be deported rather than locked up.
The laws are set to be brought in next year and may not be applied retroactively - meaning those who are already serving sentences for drug related crimes may still have to finish their sentence.
Detained in Dubai - an organisation that helps foreigners arrested in Dubai - said the court 'sentenced him to ten years in prison, despite new legislation eliminating prison sentences for foreigners found in possession and allowing for deportation instead'.
Detained in Dubai CEO Radha Stirling said police had been 'extremely negligent' when arresting football coach Hood.
She said: "There was no evidence whatsoever of trafficking and none of selling. Dubai's overzealous prosecution has ruined this young man's life and put him and his family through hell."
