Judge Judy's private jet took a beating over the weekend while parked at an airport in South Florida.

The aircraft was parked at Naples Municipal Airport when it was hit by winds that were gusting up to 80 mph. Several other planes at the airport were also spun around and moved from their parking spots, according to Naples Daily News.

Judge Judy, whose real name is Judith Sheindlin, usually spends the winter at a home in Naples.
