Former Miss USA Rima Fakih got arrested for DUI the other night.

The 26-year-old, who became the first Miss USA of Arabian descent when she captured the crown in 2010, then managed to keep it despite controversy over some pole dancing pics, faces drunken driving charges after a weekend bust in Highland Park, Mich.

Rima Fakih Tweeted Saturday: "Let's clear things up now. ... I'm NOT in Michigan and I'm NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih." But ... it sort of looks like that was the right Fakih.

The post has since been removed, and on Sunday her attorney Doraid Elder confirmed the arrest, noting that her record "has not a single blemish," other than this and that Rima is "very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she's in."

Police offered no additional details of the arrest.

The stunning beauty queen appeared to be in good spirits today however, Tweeting: "A long run always gets me energized! Its time to make football Sunday food."
