LAS VEGAS (AP) -.

A former Nevada beauty queen who was stripped of her Miss Nevada U.S.A title in 2006 has actually been charged with presumably offering and having methamphetamine. Katherine Nicole Rees was charged Monday with four felony drug charges. The criminal grievance implicates Rees of apparently selling meth to an individual on Sept. 22 and having 5.3 grams of the drug a month later. Rees has dealt with mostly traffic-related legal difficulties given that losing her Miss Nevada U.S.A title after racy pictures of her surfaced online. In 2008, she paid fines for numerous misdemeanor traffic infractions. A lawyer representing Rees in an open traffic case stated he had not been representing her in this case and couldn’t comment. Court records reveal she pleaded guilty in 2012 to a single misdemeanor drug charge.
