Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih

Judge PISSED in DUI Case

1/18/2012 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former Miss USA Rima Fakih barely said a word in her DUI case hearing today ... but the judge WENT OFF on her lawyer.

Long story short -- the judge was HOPING to hear that Rima's team had banged out a plea deal with prosecutors. But after the lawyers started making excuses ... she got mad. REALLY MAD.

The judge set a bench trial date for March 14 -- which means if she doesn't strike a deal by then, she runs the risk of facing the maximum penalty ... 93 days in the slammer, plus fines.

As we previously reported, Rima was popped for DUI back in December in Michigan -- and cops claim her blood alcohol level was more than TWICE the legal limit at the time of her arrest.

This lying skank claimed it wasn't her that got the DWI and that she wasn't even in the state at the time.

Hope the Judge sticks it to this ho!

I watched the vid. The judge did not sound "pissed" to me. She sounded like every judge I've ever heard. It's soooo deflating when TMZ makes a mountain out of a mole hill. I mean, if TMZ calls that "really mad" than I hate to see what they would say when a judge IS "really mad" Headline would b "Judge defecates on defendant"

And another thing..... why do drunks need attorneys?? You are either drunk or not. If you are drunk, let the judge impose punishment and get on with it. Be done with all this continuance crap.

I remember the details when this first came out. She deserves any punishment she gets--she lied about it and the cops know she was drunk. Hope they throw the book at her.

I don't think she was quite as mad as you made her out to be, but still good for her. Our court system is clogged up with more cases than can be processed as it is. Every time they come into court unprepared on a straightforward case such as this and it causes ANOTHER court date to be set, it is taking up the court's time on that could be used on another case.

Obviously the Miss USA "pageant" is a total joke these days. It might as well be called the Miss Camel contest.

What I am against is this Miss US establishment taking advantage of young women because there is no one policing their policies.
I would suggest that the public watch something else the evening of the Miss USA pageant and boycott the advertisers. These options would drive home the
message that the pageant organizers crossed the line. .
The point is that the Miss USA should not attends to events that has alcohol companies involved or anything with alcohol. Besides taking the money of this young girls and their families. They have to work with these companies because they are waiting for the big movie, big contracts but at the end these girls ended being alcoholics with nothing and too ashamed to report.
