Former Miss New Hampshire USA faces assault charge
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - April 29, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police say a former Miss New Hampshire USA faces a simple assault charge stemming from a confrontation with her boyfriend.
Police say Sunday that 26-year-old Nicole Houde (hud) was arrested Wednesday. Authorities say the Manchester beauty queen punched, kicked, scratched and bit 33-year-old Scott Nickerson, also of Manchester.
Police say the two were arguing and Nickerson took Houde's cellphone, prompting the physical confrontation.
Houde was the 2010 Miss New Hampshire USA.
Miss New Hampshire USA and Miss Teen New Hampshire USA are distinct from Miss New Hampshire and Miss America pageants.
