Oh dear! This is no way for a Miss Teen America contestant to act!
Last weekend, Miss Teen Arkansas Megan Burgess was arrested outside her college dorm for public intoxication.
The story we got from a rep at the Miss USA Organization was that Megan was found drunk outside her University of Arkansas dorm. Her RA called the police and when they got to her, she was sitting in the snow all by herself. Sad!
Still, it doesn't sound like the Miss USA Organization will be demanding her crown. Sources at the organization say Megan "is a sweet girl who exemplifies the values of a Miss Teen title holder and is mortified about this."
They added that she even called the organization after her release to apologize for the "shame" she brought the program and her state.
Ah, poor girl. She's allowed to make a few mistakes, right? Besides, it sounds more embarrassing than scandalous. If she's really learned her lesson, we don't see the harm in letting this slide.
