Hong Kong model-actress facing drug and driving charges after Nevada desert event

Authorities in Nevada say a Hong Kong fashion model is facing a felony drug charge following her arrest at the Burning Man festival, along with misdemeanor vehicle charges after crashing a rented motor home into Reno's "Biggest Little City in the World" arch.

Pershing County Sheriff Ron Skinner said Wednesday that Rosemary Vandenbroucke was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Sunday with a small amount of ecstasy at the counterculture festival in the Black Rock desert.

The 28-year-old was charged with possession of a controlled substance and released on $15,000 bail with an Oct. 19 court date.

Reno police Sgt. Jim Stegmaier says Vandenbroucke faces several misdemeanor charges after the motor home crash Monday afternoon in downtown Reno.

The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the crash and arrest.
