Today's Toronto Star has the in-depth account of beauty queens in England duking it out:
Beauty queen busted for bar brawl with rival
November 07, 2009 | Toronto Star
You might expect pageant queens to demonstrate their talent, beauty and poise, but Miss England has added fisticuffs to her resumé. Rachel Christie, 21, has relinquished her crown after being arrested on suspicion of punching Miss Manchester, 24-year-old Sara Beverly Jones, at a nightclub.
The dispute arose when the two beauty queens encountered each other at a bar on Monday.
The BBC reported Jones was allegedly punched in the face after an argument said to be about a TV personality from the Gladiators program, which airs in the U.K.
It is believed that Jones is an ex-girlfriend of TV gladiator Tornado, whose real name is David McIntosh.
Christie, McIntosh's current girlfriend, has been released on bail until January 2010.
Someone might want to throw that gladiator into the lion's den . . . .
