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.'"

TMZ seems to be fixating on this one "shame on my state line". Apparently, they believed grammar-loving folks would be in stitches over this minor verbal misstep. Ouch. Good one, TMZ.

Bleh!    

Called the cops cause she held a beauty title. Vindictive. Most everyone has been drunk at least once in their youth. Gotta call cops on a little gal sitting outside alone in the snow. Sure.

Ban those age limits on alcohol!!! It is those laws which prevented the other students to deal with her situation on their own.

Here even High School kids can drink legally and if some got too much to drink the classmates would have dragged her to bed themselves or called a responsible adult. People help when they can help without risking being procecuted for underaged drinking themselves.

TMZ, you are a bunch of ****ing pigs. This is an 18 year old girl who got drunk at college and you post her face all over the world. You are s***mier than the Dirty that Dr. Phil got interviewed. Stick to L.A. trash, leave our girls alone. How about we run checks on all your employees. I'm sure there is more than one pedophile in there.

Hmm, a drunk college student? What a shocker. They only called the cops because she is Miss Teen Arkansas. That resident should be fired for being an idiot. If she was not harming anyone or herself this isn't an issue.

Again, the misogyny comes out in full force. She's a c-unt or a whore because she got arrested. I expect to see some of you featured on a show hosted by Bill Kurtis on Investigation Discovery after you've killed a bunch of prostitutes... because no woman will have any of you without pay, which is why you're bitter and angry. Those of you misogynists who aren't using prostitutes are most likely virgins.

Everyone should definitely cut this girl some slack. I go to UofA, I actually stay in the same dorm as her and my friend who also lives in the same dorm had a PI earlier this semester, the RAs in the dorm we live in are just being stupid calling the cops on people who come back from partying. Its collge, Im a freshman too, we all drink and party. Just cause shes a beauty queen doesnt mean shes above ****ing **** up. layyyy offf
