Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih gets probation in DUI case

A police report says Fakih was driving with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when she was arrested for drunken driving in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park. Officers say a half-full wine bottle on the floorboard behind the driver's seat. Authorities gave her a breath test that showed a 0.19 percent blood-alcohol level, and a test about an hour later at the police station was 0.20. Michigan law defines drunkenness a level of 0.08 percent. (AP Photo/Charles Sykes)
