Pretty is as pretty does... Former Miss USA Rima Fakih -- who won the pageant in May 2010 -- is facing drunken driving charges following her arrest this weekend in Highland Park, Mich., People magazine reports.

Fakih's attorney Doraid Elder confirmed the arrest, adding that the beauty queen is "very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she's in right now," according to People. Fakih tweeted on Saturday: "Let's clear things up now. ... I'm NOT in Michigan and I'm NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih." But the post has since been removed.

This isn't the first time Fakih has been surrounded by scandal. Right after she won the Miss USA pageant, a 2007 video of her competing in a "Stripper 101" pole dancing contest emerged. Fakih was the first Arab American ever to win the pageant and the first Miss Michigan to win the title since 1993.
