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.

She's really cute but you can't lie about this stuff because you'll be found out. If you don't want to own up to it then just keep quiet.

First, she's arrested for drunk driving. Then, she lies about it. Then, her attorney says, yeah, she was arrested. Now on the news, they are saying she doesn't know who tweeted under her name that she wasn't arrested. Another lie. Nowadays, people think if they lie enough about something, the public will eventually believe them. How sad and true.

Someone run a quick check on how many people in the USA with the name Rima Fakih. That will definitely tell you if she was lying or not. Her name is not that common.
