Former Miss New Hampshire USA Faces Assault Charges
Police say a former Miss New Hampshire USA faces an assault charge stemming from a confrontation with her boyfriend. On Sunday, police said 26-year-old Nicole Houde was arrested Wednesday after she punched, kicked, scratched and bit 33-year-old Scott Nickerson.
CBS Boston reports that the argument began when Nickerson accused Houde of having an affair. At some point, Nickerson took her cell phone and wouldn’t give it back. That’s when police say Houde attacked him.
Houde won the Miss New Hampshire crown in 2010. However, she’s not the first 2010 Miss USA contestant to find herself in legal trouble. 2010 Miss USA pageant winner Rima Fakih pleaded no contest to drunk driving charges in early April.
