Former Miss USA Arrested For Drunk Driving! Then Tries To Deny It!

So much for poise and class!

Former 2010 Miss USA Rima Fakih was pulled over and arrested for drunk driving in Highland Park, Michigan early Saturday morning while driving with a friend to another friend's house.

The pageant winner blew a .20, which was more than TWICE the legal limit in Michigan.

After spending most of the day in jail on Saturday, she was eventually released.

She then tried to DENY the incident, going on her Twitter saying:

"Let's clear things up now…. I'm NOT in Michigan and I'm NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih."

Her attorney Doraid Elder later released a statement, confirming that she in fact WAS arrested with a DUI, saying:

"Unfortunately she was. [She is] very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now."

But then, the tweets were deleted and her only reference to the incident that was left was when she told a fan:

"I'd rather talk to the media myself and clear up all the rumors."

SO BUSTED! Who would lie about such a thing? People are obviously going to find the truth!!!

Lame!! What a disappointment.

Oh honey, you can do so much better than this guy!

Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt is seeing this year's Miss USA Rima Fakih! A source reveals:

"They met through friends and have been talking and seeing each other. He flew to NYC to do press [for his new show, The Reinhardts: Family Comes First], but knew she would be here and they would get together.

"She's flying to L.A. to see him next week. It's very new, but they're having a good time. She made him watch the Miss USA pageant. He isn't jumping into anything. He's enjoying everything he's got going on right now."

The two of them have been on a few dates in the past three weeks, but a pal close to Rima says, "She's crushing on Doug, but she recently broke up with her on and off again beau."

Sounds like both of them are on the rebound!

Outstanding!

Twenty-four year-old Miss Michigan, Rima Fakih, an immigrant from Lebanon, was crowned Miss USA last night!

Though she almost took a tumble in her evening gown, Rima admitted she knew she had won the title after noticing a certain look on pageant owner Donald Trump's face. She told reporters:

"That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You're hired,'."

Charming! Lovely! Well deserved!

Congrats, girl!
