Shouldn’t a Former Miss USA Know Designated Drivers Aren’t Supposed to Drink?
Former Miss USA Rima Fakih was acting like a few Miss USAs before her when she was arrested early Saturday morning on misdemeanor drunk driving charges. She was pulled over near Highland Park, MI while behind the wheel of her friend's car.
According to the 26-year-old's attorney Doraid Elder, the beauty queen took over driving duties because she decided her companion was too drunk to drive.
Initially, Fakih denied she had been arrested, writing,
Let’s clear things up now…I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m not in jail! Wrong Fakih' on a Twitter post that has [since] been deleted.
However, Elder confirmed the arrest Sunday, although he wasn't sure Fakih had been taken to jail or released to another person.
