Ex 'American Idol' Finalist Arrested for Girl Fight

3/30/2010 11:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A finalist from season 6 of "American Idol" was arrested in Georgia last night after cops say they had to rip her out of a ferocious girl-on-girl brawl.

The perp is 22-year-old Stephanie Edwards who finished in 11th place behind Jordin Sparks back in 2007.

According to the Chatham County Sheriff's Dept, Edwards was busted in Savannah around 10:00 PM after cops noticed the singer and another woman "fighting in the middle of the street." Cops say they broke up the fight and arrested both women.

Edwards told police she had gone to the other woman's home to confront her about "harassing phone calls" -- and that's when things got violent.

Both women were transported to a nearby jail. Edwards has since been released.

As for who won the fight -- cops say Edwards had a couple of scratches on her face and chest, but the other woman had a bruised up right eye ... so, sounds like a draw.

ELEVENTH place behind Jordin Sparks?

That is such an insignificant statistic for you to bring Jordin Sparks' name into the story.

That isn't good for Jordin. It ties her into to this violence even though she was totally UNinvolved.

Why do you do this, TMZ? This is truly unfair!

These kind of "people" are always involved with the Law, or the Court System, or other social drama. Why is that? Me and my kind can go an entire lifetime with no Police, Legal, Courts, other forms of social drama. These are real failures.

Cops only break up fights between ugly women...if they are hotties, they just film it and send the footage to Joe Francis.

So do a lot of "people". You're suggesting that all "people" get busted and end up in court? Shall I start to list all your "people" that have been busted and go thru the system?

Let me educate the TMZ staff who authored this piece. Who won the fight? Since when is assault a win? Time to grow up and consult with Harvey, I think.
