This is why Mom always says to wear clean underwear and to put your bongs and drugs away before leaving the house. Police in Iowa City, Iowa, responded to a call early Friday about someone making a commotion outside of an apartment complex, the Gazette reports. They say they found 19-year-old Jailin Turner "yelling and kicking the window" of her apartment and flinging patio furniture off the balcony because she couldn't find her keys. The fire department eventually got her into the apartment—but she probably wishes they hadn't helped her out at all.

When cops entered the premises, they say they saw two bongs right off the bat; their curiosity obviously piqued, they then found a grinder, an electronic scale, and two pot plants under grow lights in her room (which she reportedly allowed them to search). Turner was arrested on charges of a controlled substance violation, an Iowa drug tax stamp violation, possession of drug paraphernalia, and—perhaps most embarrassingly—a "disorderly house." (A Texas drug bust was made all thanks to a wrong address.)
