A former Miss Indiana pageant winner was arrested in Bloomington Wednesday on several charges.
At 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, officers were dispatched to 300 block of East 8th Street on a report of an intoxicated female knocking on the caller's apartment door for about half an hour.
The caller said the female was banging on the door and yelling, "let me in." Officers arrived found Terrin Thomas (photo) still outside of the door.
Thomas was won the Miss Indiana pageant in 2013.
Bloomington police said Thomas appeared to be intoxicated based upon her slurred speech and abusive attitude toward them. The officer also reported noticing a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Thomas.
Thomas was wearing shorts, a long-sleeve shirt and socks. She told police she was looking for her boyfriend's apartment.
Officers attempted to get a phone number to call the boyfriend, but Thomas said she did not have her phone or the number.
Thomas then attempted to leave the area. Officers said Thomas kept repeating herself and would not listen to questions.
At that time she was placed under arrest. When asked to sit in the rear of the vehicle, officers say she refused and pushed away. Thomas was eventually placed in the squad car and taken to the Monroe County jail.
She was booked in on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.
