Miss Universe entrant in booze scandal

MISS Universe hopeful Lauryn Eagle is in a world of trouble after being accused of lying to police when she was pulled over at an RBT.

The 22-year-old model and water skiing champion was arrested on Monday night after being pulled over by a RBT unit in Sylvania in southern Sydney, The Daily Telegraph reports.

A police statement said: "Police will allege the woman failed to provide a current New South Wales driver's licence and stated false particulars.

"She was arrested and charged with stating a false name and driving while suspended."

A spokeswoman for Eagle said she couldn't comment because the "matter is before the court".

She was bailed to appear in Sutherland Court on January 14.

A spokesman for the Miss Universe Australia pageant confirmed Eagle had entered the NSW leg of the 2010 competition.

"Lauryn is an entrant," he said.

A friend of Eagle said she recently lost her provisional licence after being caught speeding, and was driving the Holden utility after a friend on whom she was relying for a lift didn't turn up.

"This is totally out of character," he said.

Eagle plans to cross Bass Strait, one of the world's most treacherous waterways, on a waterski to raise money for melanoma and breast cancer research next year.

She dedicated her career to her late father Peter, who died in a speedboat accident on Sydney Harbour last year. He introduced his daughter to waterskiing at three.

A year after being crowned Miss Teen International in Costa Rica at the age of 16 she won the world junior water skiing championships.

Eagle recently embarked on a strict fitness program as part of her tilt for the Miss Universe Australia title, including a regime of regular boxing and the recent 2.5km Bondi-to-Bronte swim.
