Frostburg, Maryland (The Weekly Vice) -- Christie Ganoe, a 22-year-old Cumberland, Maryland woman who is the reigning Miss Washington County, has been arrested and charged with 2nd-degree-assault and 4th-degree burglary after authorities say she broke into her ex-boyfriend's house and punched a woman in the head.
According to Frostburg police, officers were dispatched to the home of Ganoe's ex-boyfriend who told authorities that he wanted Ganoe to leave his house. Officers escorted Ganoe from the residence and took her home, however when the officers left, Ganoe allegedly went back to the ex-boyfriend's home 15 minutes later, broke into the residence and then punched a woman in the head.
Ganoe, who was crowned Miss Washington County in February, was arrested and charged with 2nd-degree assault and 4th degree burglary. She was released on her own recognizance, according to an Allegany County District Court commissioner. She is scheduled to appear in court to face the charges on October 20.
Curiously enough, Ganoe's platform during her competition was educating people to prevent bullying.
Mike Allegretto, director of operations for the Miss America Organization headquarters in New Jersey, said that the organization is aware of the arrest and is looking into it.
