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."

"There was one night last week where [Rima Fakih] had some interviews the next day," says Paula Shugart, the president of the ridiculous organization.

"She was sound asleep, and looked like she'd been out all night."

Fakih did make the interviews, but her handlers are still asking about the security tapes, as this is "serious business," especially after Tara Conner.

Years before she became the first Muslim-American to win the Miss USA crown, Rima Fakih won another prestigious title - "Stripper 101" pole dancing champion!

Back in 2007, the sexy, newly-minuted beauty pageant queen dominated a stripper contest for local Detroit radio morning show called Mojo in the Morning.

Forget the prizes won last night. Rima Fakih earned fabulous prizes for the stripper victory: "jewelry, gift cards, adult toys and a stripper pole for home use."

Top that, Donald Trump!

In case Miss USA Rima Fakih needs a career to fall back on ...

But, lest we start thinking this ranks with Tara Conner and Carrie Prejean scandals in Miss USA lore, it's not even close. She was clothed during all pole riding.

Just the same, you can see the polished form she has, and the natural managed to walk away with a bra stuffed with dollar bills ... those are some nice tips!
