Bench warrants have been issued for her arrest on charges that she stole money from the town of Ocean City, Md. in June last summer, the same month she was filming a video for a porn site, according to multiple reports.
King is also facing charges for being a minor in possession of alcohol for an incident that occurred on Aug. 2 last year. You must be 21 to drink in Maryland.
Oddly, King recently tweeted about looking forward to returning to Ocean City, again, to work for the summer. But it’s unknown whether she meant Ocean City, Md., or similarly named city in New Jersey.
She was crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA 2013 last November after reigning as Miss Delaware International 2012. The application to compete in the pageant supposedly includes a questions about criminal background and a morals clause.
During filming of the clip, the woman was asked why she wanted to do the video: “I thought it would be fun and I needed the money,” she replied. “So I just decided to do it.”
King reportedly was paid $1,500 for the video, but the porn site turned her down when she asked to shoot another because she was too “frigid.”
In her only interview since the video surfaced King, 18, told the Wilmington News Journal newspaper that she wasn’t the woman in the video. But the two are identical and the woman volunteered that she had a beauty pageant background during the interview portion of the tape.
King resigned her title the same week the porn site identified the woman in the video as the reigning Miss Delaware Teen.
Her arrest warrants for failing to appear in court are currently sealed because both are still active, according to the Worcester County court. Neither King nor her attorney, J. Gregory Hannigan of Hagerstown, Md., could be reached for comment.
