Gimmie that crown!!!

I heard this on the news this morning and it made me laugh.
Poor dear, I'm sure she's actually quite smart! ;-)

Beauty Queen Arrested After Skipping on Restaurant Bill

BOSSIER CITY, La. — Reigning Miss Teen Louisiana USA Lindsey Evans and three friends were arrested over the weekend for leaving a Bossier City restaurant without paying their bill.
Police say the 18-year-old Evans of Blanchard left her purse at the restaurant and the women were arrested when they returned to get it.
Police spokesman Mark Natale says Evans and her friends were booked Saturday night on charges of theft after they ran up a $46.07 bill and left without paying. He says the women admitted intentionally leaving without paying their bill.
In addition to the theft charge, Evans was booked with possession of marijuana that was found in her purse. The other women face similar charges. All four were released from jail Sunday after posting bond.
Evans' reign as Miss Teen Louisiana ends in November. A spokesman for the Miss Louisiana Teen USA organization says they spoke with Evans on Monday but have not decided whether to take action against her. That action could include her losing her title.

According to the report on the radio this morning, she was indeed stripped of her crown, with only 11 days left in her 'rein'. Ouch.

I do have to give her credit for her mugshot. Let that winning personality shine through!!!!

She should have lost it. While I'm not going to get into the politics of whether or not beauty pageants are good or not, the women who win are supposed to be role models to young girls. Having lived in Louisiana, the crown holders there are really looked up to by young girls. You can't do something stupid like she did and expect to still be looked up to. It does suck for the runner-up who gets 11 days as the titleholder and now can't compete this year!
