Fakih initially denied the charges, tweeting the following on Saturday: “Let’s clear things up now. … I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih.” The post, however, has been removed, and her attorney Doraid Elder confirmed he arrest on Sunday.
Elder did not reveal a whole lot of details regarding the arrest, but did say that Fakih does not have “a single blemish” on her record, and that she is “ very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she’s in right now.”
Fakih was crowned Miss USA in 2010, and was the first Miss Michigan to win the title since 1993.
