Miss Arizona Teen USA

Okay Fine, I Was BUZZED

Before DUI Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

062612_tori_launch
Former Miss Arizona Teen USA Tori Vance -- who pled "not guilty" to DUI last week after her recent arrest -- is now admitting ... she DID have something to drink before cops busted her behind the wheel last month.

Tori was out shopping in L.A. yesterday with a beauty pageant buddy when she gave us the blow-by-blow -- saying, "I was coming from Rosa Mexicana. It was Cinco de Mayo. So I shouldn't have been driving. I know better."

Tori added, "I didn't even give it a thought and I had something to drink."

QUICK REMINDER -- TORI IS ONLY 18 YEARS OLD.

After leaving the restaurant, Tori said she pulled an illegal U-turn and -- just her luck -- a cop car was right behind her. The giant sombrero she was wearing at the time probably didn't help her case.

As we reported, Tori pled "not guilty" -- but our guess ... her lawyer's are currently hammering out a plea deal with prosecutors. Tori's due back in court July 25th.

Gone are the good old days when beauty queens wanted to teach the world to sing and find a cure for cancer and help poor kids with spina bifida. SMH.

She is a celebrity DUI. So far so good. Now she needs to have Justin Bieber's baby.

Ugh making celebrities out of girls who got a lucky roll of the dice and chanced up on some looks. Just know I will never respect you as a person just a piece meat which to gawk over.

Dumb skank bitch. Take her license away til she's 21, pay that big DUI fine, and give her 100 hours community service. The prosecutor shouldn't be making a deal when he has her dead to rights. Take the bitch to court!

If she'd done this in Arpaio-land, she'd be looking at the pink underwear drill we have here in Arizona.
