Fakih’s lawyer Doraid Elder told The Detroit Free Press his client’s record “has not a single blemish” and she was “very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now.”

Fakih briefly tried to deny the bust,tweeting late Saturday: “Let’s clear things up now…. I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih.”  The tweet was deleted a short time later.
