Even with a private jet, you still can't expect to haul marijuana from one state to another...and get away with it. On Monday, Lisette Lee, 28, of Beverly Hills found herself under arrest when she arrived at the airport in Columbus, Ohio, after flying in from Van Nuys Airport with one personal assistant, two bodyguards, at least 12 suitcases, and 500 pounds of marijuana, according to LA Now. As a result, "Lee has been charged with conspiracy and possession with the intent to distribute. She is being held without bail pending a hearing Friday in Ohio." Her three companions have all been released. (Photo: Drug Enforcement Agency)
