Ex-Miss USA gets probation in DUI case

2012-05-10 10:39
Michigan - Rima Fakih, the first Arab-American to be crowned Miss USA, has been sentenced to probation and community service in a drunken driving case.

The 26-year-old avoided the possibility of jail time during Wednesday's hearing in Michigan.

The judge put her on six months' probation, ordered 20 hours of community service and said she must pay $600 in fines and costs.

Fakih also must attend an alcohol safety class.

She pleaded no contest in April to driving while visibly impaired.

She has said she wasn't drinking on the night of her arrest in December, but two police breath tests put Fakih's blood alcohol content at more than twice the legal limit.

She was crowned Miss USA in 2010.
