Miss USA arrested on DUI charges!

Posted by Matt Olszewski on December 6, 2011

TMZ reports that the beauty queen, Rima Fakih, was arrested in Highland Park, Michigan on Saturday for suspicion of drunk driving. Fakih tried to deny the incident initially, tweeting on Saturday, “Let’s clear things up now…. I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih.”

But her attorney, Doraid Elder, stated “Unfortunately she was.” The tweet has since disappeared and Elder commented that Fakih is “very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now.”

But her lawyer tells the Detroit Free Press that the arrest was based merely on “allegations.” Further investigation by the Highland Park police will happen tomorrow.

As the attorney points out, these are merely “allegations”.  Just because someone is arrested for DUI, does NOT mean that they will be convicted or found guilty of DUI.  Why?
