Former Miss USA arrested on drunken driving charge

Failing to handle the spirit of alcohol, former Miss USA Rima Fakih was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving on Saturday (December 3) in a Detroit.

The Associated Press reports that the police pulled over 26-year-old Fakih after "weaving in heavy traffic and changing lanes without using a turn signal." Officers found a half-full wine bottle was on the floorboard behind the driver's seat.

Her blood alcohol level registered at 0.19 percent and a 0.20 percent (legal limit is .08).

But before failing the two breath tests, it seems Fakih tried her charm to the police by "immediately identifying herself as Miss USA."

Fakih became the first Miss Michigan to win the Miss USA title in May 2010 and the first Arab American ever to win the pageant.
