Former Miss USA Rima Fakih Arrested on Drunk Driving Charges


Former Miss USA titleholder, Rima Fakih, who earned her title in 2010, is now facing charges for drunk driving after being arrested over the weekend in Highland Park in Michigan, according to some reports.

Apparently, the former American beauty queen denied the arrest on her Twitter page. According to her tweet on Saturday:

“Let’s clear things up now.  I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih.”

But contradict to her tweet, Rima’s attorney, Doraid Elder, confirmed the arrest and then the tweet was deleted. Elder confirmed also that Fakih’s record “has not a single blemish” and Fakih is very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now.

The Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih is 26-year old born in Lebanon. She was raised in New York and moved to Michigan in 2003. Her family lives in Detroit suburb of Dearborn.

Fakih was the first Miss Michigan to win the title since 1993 and the first Arab American winner ever the title. Rima ended her reign last June 19, 2011.
