(Fayetteville, AR) A college beauty queen has been charged with drunk driving in Arkansas.

21-year-old Sarah Gafvert was arrested on September 26th and crowned Miss University of Arkansas last Sunday.

Gafvert told pageant officials about the arrest and says she plans to appeal.

Gafvert says she has diabetes and that may have played a role in failing the sobriety test.

Pageant officials say she can keep the crown until the outcome of the court case.
