Penelope Soto, a Florida teen, was caught on videotape giving the middle finger to Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat.

Soto, 18, was arrested on drug possession charges and showed up at her hearing evidently with an attitude that displeased the judge.

According to NBC Miami, Judge Rodriguez-Chomat wanted to know about Soto’s financial assets before doling out a penalty.

Soto said that she had a car and “a lot” of jewelry. When the judge tried to get her to clarify her statement, Soto responded that it was “like Rick Ross. It’s worth a lot of money.”

“It’s not a joke, you know, we’re not in a club now. We are not in a club, be serious about it,” the judge responded.

While the Miami teen could have walked away from her hearing with her bond set at $5,000, she decided to give a the judge a sarcastic sendoff by saying “adios.”

As she walked away from the window, the judge called Soto back and then raised her bond to $10,000.

"Are you serious?" the teen asked.

"I am serious. 'Adios,'" the judge responded.

Soto proceeded to give the judge the finger and told him to “f**k himself,” at which point he quickly upped her punishment to 30 days in prison.

As is procedure with the Miami-Dade Circuit court, all hearings are videotaped for state records.
