Rima Fakih, winner of the 2010 Miss USA beauty pageant, has been arrested on charges of doing something rather ugly — drunk driving.
Cops nabbed Fakih outside of Detroit around 2:15 a.m. Saturday, but a just-released police report indicates that she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal 0.08 percent, according to the Associated Press.
Authorities stopped Fakih’s 2011 Jaguar when they noticed that the vehicle kept weaving through traffic. They say she had an uncorked, half-empty bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne on the floor, behind the driver’s seat, the AP notes.
When she’s not drinking bubbly — and allegedly getting behind the wheel right after doing so — the Dearborn-based beauty queen is actively pursuing a professional wrestling career.
