Katherine Rees was Miss Nevada and was stripped of her crown. Now she was arrested in Las Vegas and faces felony drug charges. See the mugshot and more photos and find out more about this latest development in the public life of the former beauty queen.
The story of 30-year-old former beauty queen — who is known variously as Katie Rees and her full name Katherine Nicole Rees — has made headlines around the world. Losing her crown gave her publicity and now, with the arrest she is back in the news again as many make the frantic search for the booking photo, which you can see above.
She was crowned Miss Nevada USA, part of the Donald Trump-owned Miss USA and Miss Universe Organization. She lost her crown back in 2007 when racy photos surfaced. It was, back then, the typical scandal that befalls beauty queens. In her case, the photos were from a party in Tampa, Florida and she was seen in the intimate company of other women. In the aftermath, she gave interviews — one of which you can see below. And, as is typical, the photos live on in digital infamy and with the most basic of Google searches they are easily found.
As for her run-ins with the law, back in 2008 she was charged with resisting arrest in Las Vegas after a traffic stop. But this time around it’s far more serious. According to People, court documents allege that she sold meth and that she was later in possession of 5.3 grams of meth.
Katie Rees has now been arrested again, in Las Vegas, and this time faces felony charges as follows: trafficking in a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance, and two counts of conspiracy to violate the uniform controlled substances act.
