Former Miss USA Arrested on DUI Charges

 
 
December 5, 2011 Queen, Rima Fakih
 

Former Miss USA Rima Fakih may be adding an unfortunate new title to her roster: defendant.

Fakih, 26, who captured the Miss USA crown in 2010, is facing drunken driving charges after a weekend arrest in Highland Park, Mich.

Fakih Tweeted on Saturday: "Let's clear things up now. ... I'm NOT in Michigan and I'm NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih." But the post has since been removed, and on Sunday her attorney Doraid Elder confirmed the arrest.

Elder had few details of the arrest but said Fakih's record "has not a single blemish," adding that the beauty queen is "very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she's in right now."

In May 2010 Fakih became the first Miss Michigan to win the Miss USA title since 1993 and the first Arab American ever to win the pageant. She competed for Miss Universe later that year but lost.

Police offered no details of the arrest. And on Sunday, the beauty queen appeared to be in good spirits, Tweeting: "A long run always gets me energized! Its time to make football Sunday food."
