Miss Teen Louisiana is losing her crown 11 days early after being arrested on charges of leaving a restaurant without paying and carrying marijuana.
Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale said Wednesday that police found 18-year-old Lindsey Evans' pocketbook when they were called to a restaurant where four young women left Saturday without paying a $46.07 check.
He says her driver's license and suspected marijuana were inside. Police arrested all four for theft when the group returned for Evans' pocketbook, and three were booked on drug charges.
Sponsor RPM Productions, Inc. says Evans was stripped of the title Tuesday because of her arrest.
The next Miss Teen Louisiana will be crowned Nov. 1 at a pageant in Lafayette.
