FRESNO, Calif. — Police say a former California beauty queen has been arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct after an allegedly drunken encounter with officers.

The Fresno Bee reports Kelsey Schulteis, who was Miss Fresno County in 2016, was also cited Sunday for resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer. It wasn’t immediately known if Schulteis has an attorney.

Police received a call around 1:20 a.m. about drunk people in northeast Fresno. When officers arrived, they found two people, a man and Schulteis, near a parked car that was damaged, possibly from a collision.

Police say Schulteis showed symptoms that she was drunk, to the point of not being able to care for herself. She allegedly became belligerent with the officers and uncooperative.

The man at the scene was questioned and released.
