Former Miss Delaware Teen Melissa King Has Two Arrest Warrants

| by

It seems former Miss Delaware Teen USA Melissa King had more than a porn video lurking in her past, as it was revealed that she has two outstanding police warrants in Maryland from underage possession of alcohol and theft charges.

Melissa King, 18, gave up her crown last week after her alleged porn video surfaced on the Internet.

The arrest warrants were issued last year after she did not appear in court on theft citations and possessing alcohol as a minor.

King was cited in June for stealing money from a city bus fare box. Though authorities won’t state exactly how much she stole, they said it was less than $100.

An arrest warrant was issued for King in August after the bus fare incident and another one was issued in October for the alcohol citation.

“Neither one is extraditable from Delaware,” Officer Mike Levy, police spokesman for the department in Ocean City, Maryland, said.

“The warrants are on file. If she surrenders herself in Maryland, she will have to go before the court to deal with the charges.”

King appears to have received the charges shortly after she left foster care and around the same time the alleged porn video was recorded.

Though she has denied appearing in the video, the woman in it is strikingly similar to her and also identifies herself by name.

“I, Melissa King, am doing this scene of my own free will and I am of sound mind and body. I am not under the influence of drugs or any mind-altering substances,” she said.

After the video was released, King quickly gave up her crown and shut down her Facebook fan page.

A spokesperson for Miss Teen USA confirmed her resignation.

“I would like to confirm the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King’s attorney,” they said.

It looks as if the video was filmed in June of 2012. She was crowned Miss Delaware Teen just a few months later.

In it, the interviewer asks what made her want to do the video. “I thought it’d be fun and it sounded like I needed the money,” the girl said. “So I just decided to do it.”
