A Texas Beauty Queen Lost Her Crown Because Of A Past DUI

A Texas beauty queen lost her crown because of a lawsuit filed by her competition.
In June, Caitlin Cifuentes was crowned Miss Corpus Christi Latina. Six of her competitors filed a lawsuit against the pageant director, Kayla Alvarez, claiming Cifuentes was not eligible to compete because of a criminal history and a previous marriage.
The Miss Corpus Christi Latina contest is a preliminary for Miss Texas Latina, which feeds into the Miss Latin America of the World competition. The international competition began in 1981 in Mexico; more countries and primary competitions have been added each year. This was the first year for the Miss Corpus Christi Latina preliminary.
