Police: Ex-Miss USA was above legal alcohol limit

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - December 4, 2011

The report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act request says the 26-year-old from Dearborn was pulled over early Saturday speeding and weaving in traffic.

The report says she "immediately identified herself as Miss USA."

Officers say a half-full wine bottle was on the floorboard behind the driver's seat. Two breath tests showed a 0.19 and a 0.20 percent blood-alcohol level.

Michigan law defines drunkenness at a level of 0.08 percent.

Phone and email messages were left for Fakih and her lawyer on Tuesday.
