24 Arrested for Drug Possession Charges at Holy Ship! 2018 Including DJ Gina Turner

As EDM Life reported in September, Holy Ship! 2018 set sail from Port Canaveral, Florida to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas this past weekend. Two dozen people however never boarded the Norwegian Epic cruise ship on Saturday.

Twenty-four people were arrested for drug possession charges that included cocaine, MDMA (ecstasy), marijuana, and possession without a prescription. Two of the people arrested are charged with trafficking narcotics with intent to sell.

The most notable of the arrests was artist DJ Gina Turner who was booked to play both the 4-day and 3-day Holy Ship! cruises. Turner is charged with one felony count of cocaine possession and two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. She was arraigned and her bond was set at $15,000 cash ($5,000 for each charge).

Turner spoke out after her arrest on Twitter with a tweet that has since been deleted. The deleted tweet said, “I can’t say much regarding this case. But I’ll be back on @Holy_Ship 11.0 and the alleged charges are invalid, the two controlled substances I had, were both marijuana + I have a medical card, the other charge is COMPLETELY False. A false positive reading on a natural vitamin.”
