Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih Arrested on Drunk Driving Charge:

Lebanese immigrant Rima Fakih and Miss USA (2010) was arrested early Saturday with a DUI charge and a blood alcohol level of 0.20 after a traffic stop on Woodward Avenue in Highland Park, Michigan. She is reported to have been the designated driver for a friend.

Fakih won the Miss Michigan USA pageant on September 19, 2009 at the McMorran Place Theater Port Huron. In May 2010 she represented Michigan, winning the Miss USA 2010 pageant held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rima Fakih was raised in New York and moved to Michigan with her family in 2003 to the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, where a large Arab-American community exists. Her father had owned a restaurant in New York City that experienced decline after the September 11, 2011 attacks — a decline associated with anti-Middle East sentiments.

Highland Park, Michigan, northeast of Detroit, suffered economic decline after Ford Motor Company began to move operations out of Highland Park in the late 1950’s. A decrease in the population and tax base was associated with an increase in street crime. In December 2001, the city police department was formally disbanded, and the Wayne County Sheriff Department took over police operations for the city.

The Highland Park Police Department was re-established on July 1, 2007.

In August, 2011, over two-thirds of the streetlights in Highland Park, Michigan were removed or disconnected to manage a budget cut of a $60,000 per month electric bill.
