Penelope Soto, Miami Teen, Flips Off Judge And Gets A Month In Jail (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Have we learned nothing from Lindsey Lohan? A South Miami-Dade teen who had the audacity to taunt a judge now has a month to think it over.

18-year-old Penelope Soto appeared in bond court Monday, charged with possessing bars of Xanax, but things got worse when she flipped the judge the bird.

According to Local 10, the teen was arrested Sunday evening after telling police she crashed her bike while high on the prescription drug.

A giggly Soto approached the bench to hear the charges. NBC6 reports that when Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat asked the girl if she was high, she responded, "Actually, no."

After bond was set at $5,000, Soto told the judge "Adios," a remark which rubbed Rodriguez-Chomat the wrong way -- and led him to double her bail.

"Are you serious?" remarked a shocked Soto.

"I am serious! 'Adios!'" replied the judge.

Then as Soto was leaving, she flipped off the judge, leading him to call her back to the stand.

"Did you say, fuck me?" asked Rodriguez-Chomat.

"Yes sir, I did," Soto responded.

The judge then remanded her to 30 days in jail for contempt of court, in addition to the original charge of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
