Ex-beauty queen arrested: Miss Nevada Arrested

Ex-beauty queen arrested: Miss Nevada Arrested, A former Miss Nevada is facing a string of meth-related drug charges, according to a criminal complaint filed this week.
Katherine Nicole Rees, 30, was crowned in 2006 before being stripped of her title after lewd photos of her surfaced.
In September, Rees sold meth to a man ID’d as J. Peacock, police say. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Rees was found with 5.3 grams of methamphetamine a month later.
Now she stands charged in Las Vegas with trafficking in a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance, and two counts of conspiracy to violate the uniform controlled substances act.
And this isn’t Rees’ first run-in with the law.
Rees has faced mostly traffic-related legal troubles since losing her Miss Nevada USA title after racy photos of her surfaced online.
In 2008, she paid fines for several misdemeanor traffic violations after a charge she resisted arrest was dropped.
Rees pleaded no contest to speeding, operating a motor vehicle without proof of insurance and driving with an expired registration, a suspended license and suspended registration. She agreed to pay up to $1,312 in fines.
Her attorney said Rees did not know her license and registration were suspended when she went to buy ice cream at about 3am.
She was stopped in a residential area several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, and complained that she had no phone and way to get home after the officers impounded her car.
Court records show she pleaded guilty in 2012 to a single misdemeanor drug charge.
The Miss Universe Organization and co-owner Donald Trump dethroned Rees in December 2006 after racy photos appeared on the internet showing her kissing other young women, exposing one of her breasts and pulling down her pants to show her thong underwear at a party in Tampa, Florida.
