Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih has learned her lesson after narrowly dodging a jail sentence in her recent DUI case -- stumbling drunk out of a club last weekend in Hollywood, saying, "TMZ, I'm not driving!!!"
As we previously reported, a Michigan judge sentenced Fakih to 6 months probation and alcohol-education course in May, after the former beauty queen pled no contest to driving while visibly impaired.
Fakih was arrested in December -- when cops said she had been driving with a blood alcohol level over double the legal limit.
But last Sunday, Fakih wasn't making the same mistake -- leaving Greystone Manor in Hollywood extremely intoxicated ... but refusing to get behind the wheel. Good call.
Drunk girls walking around in high heels ... never gets old.
