Miss Teen Arkansas -- 'Mortified' Over Drunk Arrest

1/25/2011 4:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

An ex-Miss Teen Arkansas USA -- who was arrested last weekend for public intoxication -- is "mortified" about the situation ... and says she's "sorry if I brought any shame on my state."

Megan Burgess Arrested
A rep for the Miss USA Organization tells TMZ, it was Megan Burgess' resident assistant at her University of Arkansas dorm who called the cops on Megan for being a drunk nuisance -- and when police found her, she was sitting in the snow outside by herself.

But the Miss USA Organization isn't holding any grudge -- telling us, Megan "is a sweet girl who exemplifies the values of a Miss Teen title holder and is mortified about this."

The rep adds, "She even called over to us and said she was 'sorry if I brought any shame on my state.'"

Imagine a drunk college student, what is the world coming to? And what was the dorm asistant thinking? My daughter was her res advisor for 2 years, lots of drunks but no police. Sounds like the assistant can't do their job if they have to call the police on this little girl.

Poor thing just got drunk and sat all alone. You people are heartless. She is hurting and very humiliated by the media attention. I implore you to look at yourselves before you judge this girl! We all have moments that are less than appropriate.

Seriously? She was drunk in her dorm room, not driving a car or anything else that might bring danger to others, and the RA calls the police? What happened to campus security and that's even if she was really disrupting the peace.
