Rima Fakih In Court Today Over DUI Arrest; Judge Gets Angry

Former WWE Tough Enough contestant and former Miss USA Rima Fakih was in court today for a hearing to respond to charges filed against her last month for Driving Under the Influence.

The judge hoped a plea deal was worked out with prosecutors but when she discovered there was no deal in place, she got angry.

A bench trial has been set for March 14, 2012 where the charges will be resolved. If a deal isn’t reached by then, Fakih would face the maximum penalty which would include 93 days in jail with fines (which is obviously not a likely scenario).

    DUIs are ridiculously complicated in the US it seems. Up here in the magical land of Canada, we pretty much just get fined, are issued a license suspension or get our cars impounded. Sometimes all three depending on the province.

    Drink driving in the UK is the same, fine, liecence taken away for a year ir more no jail terms unless someone is killed or are a mutiple convictor. It dosen’t mean you should do it though driving under the influence is wrong and should be punnished.
