Bar Refaeli Fined For Not Reporting iPad to Tel Aviv Customs

Bar Refaeli in Hot Water Over Her iPad

Good news recently came for tech-savvy Israel-bound travelers, as the country lifted its ban on iPads, finding that they don't actually pose a threat to the country's wireless communications. However, that doesn't mean it's stopped keeping a watchful eye on tablets making their way past the border. Just ask supermodel Bar Refaeli, who found out firsthand.

The Sports Illustrated model was slapped with a fine for not declaring her iPad to customs agents during a recent trip to Tel Aviv. Bar apparently was working in the country for a short time and had packed her iPad in a piece of luggage that was lost in transport. The fine? A whopping $170. Both Bar and boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio are quite familiar with the customs process in the country, as they've often been spotted visiting Bar's family and hometown landmarks, but it's possible that Bar wasn't aware of the customs drama that surrounded the tablet last month.
