Arrest warrant rescinded for Del. pageant queen
OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - A former Miss Delaware Teen USA who resigned her title after an online sex video surfaced is due in a Maryland court next month to respond to a theft charge.
A judge rescinded an arrest warrant in Ocean City for 18-year-old Melissa King and scheduled an April 22 court date.
The News Journal of Wilmington ( http://delonline.us/XmDZO6) reports the judge agreed to recall the warrant at the request of King's lawyer.
Police in Ocean City, Md., charged King last summer with taking money from the cash box of a municipal bus. She's also accused of underage possession of alcohol.
King gave up her crown last month amid allegations that she appeared in an online sex video. King said she was aware of the video but denied appearing in it.
