Tori Vance, an 18-year-old former Miss Arizona Teen USA, was arrested last weekend and charged with DUI in Los Angeles after making an illegal U-turn.
According to TMZ, the incident happened in the Hollywood area on Saturday night. Vance’s blood-alcohol level was just over the legal .08 limit. The officer who pulled her over in her Mini Cooper suspected her of being intoxicated and gave her a field sobriety test which she failed.
She was arrested and booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge, which is typical for first-time offenders, even if under the legal drinking age. Even though it is a misdemeanor Vance could still face some jail time, a fine, community service, probation, as well as a suspended license.
Vance, originally from Ahwatukee, AZ., won the Miss USA Arizona USA crown in 2010 and is currently working on her modeling career in Los Angeles, according to her Facebook page.
Throughout the Miss Teen USA Pagaent, three Miss Teen Arizona’s have won. In the 2010 competition, Vance finished outside the top 15.
