In an update to the earlier story about former Miss USA and WWE celebrity guest Rima Fakih standing trial today on drunken driving charges, TMZ is now reporting that Fakih has reached a last minute plea deal with Michigan prosecutors for a lower charge.
Fakih “pled no contest to misdemeanor driving while visibly impaired” just hours before her trial today, reports the website.
TMZ adds that due to Fakih accepting the plea deal, prosecutors dropped a more serious charge of operating while intoxicated.
The report states that Fakih will be sentenced on May 9th and could face up to 93 days of jail time.
UPDATE: Fakih commented: “You learn, you pay your price for making mistakes and you move on. I’m very happy I can put this behind me.”
