Police found a socialite in the back seat of a car with two bags of cocaine at her feet.
Kristin Fisher is fighting to have her conviction annulled after she was fined inside the Waverley Local Court in Sydney, Australia.
The 36-year-old has established herself as one of Sydney's most sought-after beauticians, with 60,000 followers on her personal Instagram account and her Double Day eyebrow business.
Fisher was arrested on July 17 when she was caught in the middle of a cocaine deal in the back seat of the drug dealer's car, News.Au reports.
According to the court, New South Wales Police noticed a motorist driving erratically, attempting to overtake a car which was reverse parking and nearly causing an accident.
When cops pulled the driver over, they found Fisher in the back seat with two bags of cocaine at her feet.
Court documents read: "The accused was frantic in the passenger seat, attempting to leave the vehicle and evade police interaction.
"Police observed two clear resealable bags containing white powder at the feet of the accused within the vehicle."
Neither Fisher nor the driver could explain why she was in the car of how they knew each other.

Her solicitor Michael Bowe says the socialite plans to fight her conviction and have it annulled.
Fisher was charged with possessing a prohibited drug as well as being issued a penalty infringement notice for breaching the public health order for leaving her home without a reasonable excuse.
The public health order is in place to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Fisher was convicted at Waverley Local Court on Tuesday, with Magistrate Ross Hudson imposing a $550 (£292) fine.
But Fisher claims she was unaware that she was required to attend court, according to her lawyer.
