Miss USA Rima Fakih

Arrested on Suspicion

of Drunk Driving

12/4/2011 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rima Fakih Miss USA
Former Miss USA Rima Fakih was arrested in Michigan early Saturday for suspicion of drunken driving ... this according to an attorney for the beauty queen.

Police would not confirm the arrest -- and Fakih even tweeted yesterday she wasn't even in Michigan -- but her attorney, Donald Elder, told the Detroit Free Press, "Unfortunately she was."

Elder told the paper Fakih was "very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now."

As for the tweet, Fakih posted around 5:00 PM on Saturday: "Let’s clear things up now.... I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih."

The tweet has since been deleted.

And this is what happens to "beauty queens". After becoming one, there is no place to go but down.

She's following the usual script about these things. Driving drunk...gets caught...tweets it wasn't her(like nobody would figure it out)...deletes tweet.

Everyone knows what comes next. The announcement apologizing for having one glass of Chardonay too many, she didn't post the tweet, and that her account had been hacked!

Yet I find it funny how ALL the drunk driving commercials are aimed at men and NEVER women... At least here in Illinois

I'm sure that her Lebanese parents are thrilled that she has embraced American culture so thoroughly. Pole dancing, beauty pageants, DUI's, what's next Girl's Gone Wild?

If a hot chick like that can't get someone to drive her something must be really wrong.

Her attorney's name is Doraid Elder (not Donald) and he's one of the best criminal defense attorneys in the area. She seems to be pretty screwed but we'll see if he can pull a miracle for her.

Stupid self entitled skank. Why is anyone with the name Rima miss USA? Get this ho out of here away from where her stupid drunk ass won't do any harm. I hate drunk drivers. Throw her in jail and let her learn a lesson when some thug criminal rips her face off.

I could be wrong... but I thought Muslims were not supposed to indulge in alcohol (not that it stops them from selling it on every corner)
