Arrest warrants for former beauty queen
A young woman who resigned as Miss Delaware Teen USA this week is the subject of two arrest warrants in Maryland.
According to the Associated Press, Ocean City police confirmed Friday that warrants were issued last year for Melissa King after she failed to appear in court on citations for theft and underage possession of alcohol.
Authorities said King was cited last June for allegedly stealing money from a city bus fare box. She was cited in August on the alcohol charge. A warrant in the theft case was issued in August, followed by an October warrant on the alcohol charge.
King resigned her pageant title after an online sex video surfaced, but has denied that she is the woman in the video.
King's attorney did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment Friday.
