HIGHLAND PARK, MICHIGAN - Police arrested former Miss USA and Michigan’s own Rima Fakih for drunk driving in Highland Park.
It happened early Saturday morning on Woodward Avenue.
Fakih's attorney confirmed the incident with Action News.
Sources say she blew a .20, which is more than twice Michigan’s legal limit. She spent most of Saturday in jail.
On her Twitter and Facebook accounts, Fakih claimed throughout most of the day that she was out of state and that it was a different Fakih.
Those posts have since disappeared.
Fakih’s attorney says Rima was pulled over and had been driving with a friend to another friend’s house.
Fakih is said to be very upset and wants to apologize to her fans. (Source)
