2010 Miss America charged with DUI. Shows anyone can be subject to criminal prosecution – not just then”other guy”. This beauty queen allegedly tested at a .19% blood alcohol level and had a half full (or empty per your disposition) bottle if champagne there in her Jag when stopped.
Hard to say what will happen, and she can likely bounce back
without too great an impact on her life – that is, if she has the right lawyer.
