Former Miss USA arrested on DUI charge
Rima Fakih became first Arab American to win crown
Former Miss USA Rima Fakih is facing drunken driving charges after a weekend arrest in Michigan.
Fakih, 26, who became the first Arab American to win the Miss USA crown in 2010, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of DUI in Highland Park, Mich., People.com reported.
Police offered no details on the arrest, although it was confirmed by her attorney, Doraid Elder.
He told People.com that Fakih's record "has not a single blemish" and added the beauty queen is "very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she's in right now."
The day after winning the Miss USA title, photos surfaced of Fakih participating in a "Stripper 101" contest at a Detroit gentlemen's club three years earlier. She later came under fire for late-night partying.
