It's a DUI for Miss USA, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

"She was pulled over for speeding at 3:30 am," a Highland Park, Michigan police officer tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.  "She was then found to be impaired and taken into custody."

The beauty queen was held until 5 pm when she posted her bail of $150.

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.

Fakih, whose reign ended in June, was the first Arab American to win the Miss USA title.
