Penelope Soto, who was arrested for possession of Xanax, got 30 days in jail after she gave the finger to Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat on Monday (video below).

When Soto was asked about her assets, including her jewelry, during the hearing, she laughed, reports NBC Miami.

"It's not a joke, you know. We're not in a club now," Judge Rodriguez-Chomat said to her. "We are not in a club. Be serious about it."

"I'm serious about it, you just made me laugh," Soto replied. "You just made me laugh, I apologize. It's worth a lot of money... Like Rick Ross. It's worth money."

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat asked Soto if she had taken any drugs in the past 24 hours, which she denied.

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat then set Soto's bond at $5,000 and said, "Bye, bye."

In response, Soto laughed and replied, "Adios."

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat called Soto back and reset her bond at $10,000, to which Soto asked, "Are you serious?"

Soto walked away, gave the finger to Judge Rodriguez-Chomat and said, "[expletive] you."

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat called Soto back again and gave her a 30-day jail sentence for contempt of court.
