The BBC reports:
Police in Sri Lanka have arrested the reigning Mrs World Caroline Jurie, after she allegedly injured a fellow beauty queen in an on-stage bust-up. Pushpika De Silva won the “Mrs Sri Lanka” title in a televised ceremony on Sunday, and former winner Mrs Jurie was meant to crown her.
Instead, she pulled the crown off Mrs De Silva’s head, claiming she could not hold the title as she was divorced. The winner later said she is separated from her husband, not divorced. Another Sri Lankan model involved in the fracas was also arrested.
