Ex Beauty Queen

Busted for Intoxicating Qualities

4/3/2009 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Raelene AguilarThe chick responsible for one of the hottest mugshots we've seen in a while is Miss New Mexico USA 2008 -- taken right after she was popped for driving drunk in Texas yesterday.

Raelene Aguilar was arrested at 3:48 AM by El Paso PD after they originally pulled her over for speeding. They gave her a a field sobriety test, which she failed. She was eventually booked into county jail at 6:00 AM and went before a judge a few hours later. Aguilar was eventually bonded out for $600.

TMZ spoke with the president of the Miss Universe Organization Paula Shugart, a bigwig at Miss USA, who says, "She has our deepest sympathies and we're hoping she can make it through this difficult time. She's a good person."

Aguilar's reign as Miss New Mexico USA came to a close at the end of 2008.

UPDATE -- Aguilar's attorney tells TMZ, "Ms. Aguilar does regret the incident, although she denies all allegations ... My client denies that she was speeding and denies failing any field sobriety test, as she did not submit to any such test. Finally, Raelene can state with confidence that she has the unwaivering support of the Miss New Mexico USA Organization."

New Mexico smart    

Really New Mexico is the worst state when in comes to drinking and driving. One out of 10 cars in New Mexico has a drink driver driving so she's just living up to our high standard of DWI's lol but she forgot she was in Texas. Bet if she were to do anything in New Mexico that catches the public eye people wouln't care if she had a DWI because it's like a right of passage here. DWI's are only a problem here if it's your fourth or fifth. So New Mexico born and raised gives you a different view on things. And suprised people actually know anything about New Mexico half the people in this country ask for our passports and are amazed we speak such good English.
