Just when things are looking up, it all comes crashing down.
90 Day Fiance couple Anfisa Arkhipchenko and Jorge Nava are still together, with Anfisa posting photos of the two of them side-by-side. But that doesn’t mean that everything’s all smiles and roses.
Because Jorge Nava was arrested earlier this month.
TMZ reports that Jorge Nava was arrested for transporting 293 pounds of marijuana.
He was arrested for possession, possession with intent to sell, transporting a controlled substance, and also possessing drug paraphernalia.
Though Jorge lives in California, where medical and recreational marijuana are both legal, there are unfortunately still states where the naughty plant remains illegal and where people’s entire lives can be ruined for possessing it.
Arizona, where Jorge was pulled over at a traffic stop before officers discovered his alleged cargo, is one of them.
Jorge was arrested on February 8th, released after paying $25,000 bond, and was formally charged on February 12th in Mohave County court.
(Yes, it’s spelled Mohave, even though the desert is the Mojave. I don’t know what to tell you. Go ask Arizona)
Jorge’s initial bond was set at $100,000, but bail and bond don’t always work how people think — unless you skip your court date.
The reality star potentially faces as much as 12.5 years in prison if convicted and given the maximum. That’s enough prison time to totally ruin someone’s life.
Jorge’s life and livelihood could be in jeopardy, and a costly court battle could ruin him.
But he looks just fine in this photo that his wife Anfisa shared recently.
Anfisa and Jorge’s relationship has always been contentious.
Not to mention controversial for viewers.
Anfisa has not been shy about characterizing herself as a gold digger. She wants to be married to a man of means.
And, as we all remember, Jorge wasn’t quite as wealthy as he had led her to believe before she came to the US to marry him.
In fact, he was in debt.
Despite the dishonestly, Anfisa and Jorge tied the knot.
Even after the two of them married, however, they didn’t exactly ride off into the sunset with a happily ever after ending.
90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? viewers saw Anfisa strike Jorge on camera. Arguments about money seemed to define their marriage.
At the tell all special, the couple appeared to be on the verge of divorce.
Jorge accused Anfisa of becoming mean once she’d gotten what she wanted from him — a boob job, paid for by him.
He also tried to imply that Anfisa, a model by trade, was working as some form of sex worker.
Things are so much better between Jorge and Anfisa now. At least, that’s how it appears from the few glimpses that Anfisa gives followers of the two of them.
Some fans can’t help but wonder if the couple being on good terms might have something to do with Jorge allegedly transporting a medium-sized football player’s worth of marijuana.
Jorge has previously been “accused” of growing and selling marijuana by an acquaintance.
Marijuana is legal in California, as we mentioned, but some wonder if he might have transported it — allegedly — to sell in states that still enforce the plant’s senseless prohibition for a higher sale value.
Perhaps, while Anfisa pursues higher education, Jorge is trying to settle his debts and make enough money to make her happy. That’s one fan theory.
Others, however, feel that this is just a way of fans trying to blame Anfisa for Jorge’s poor choices.
