Marketic claims she was sober when she was arrested walking from terminal to terminal. She said airport police refused to give her a breathalyzer test.

Marketic said she had some loose vitamins and prescription pills in her carry-on bag, and when she did not have proof of a prescription, police took her in.

A spokesman for DFW airport told FOX 4 news he would not get into a “he says, she says” situation involving the former beauty queen’s arrest.

The 36-year-old was headed to a conference in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to address people with addictive behaviors.
