BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Dec. 10, 2014)– A former Miss Indiana pageant winner was arrested Wednesday on several charges.

On Wednesday at 3:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to 300 block of East 8th Street on a report of an intoxicated female knocking on an apartment door for approximately a half hour.

The caller said that the female was banging on the door and yelling “let me in.” Officers arrived found Terrin Thomas still outside of the door.

Police said that Thomas appeared to be intoxicated based upon her slurred speech and abusive attitude towards them. The officer also allegedly noticed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Thomas.

Thomas was wearing shorts, a long sleeve shirt and only her socks. She told police she was looking for her boyfriend’s apartment.

Officers attempted to get a phone number to call the boyfriend, but Thomas said she did not have her phone or the number.

Thomas then attempted to leave the area. Officers say Thomas kept repeating herself and would not listen to questions.

At that time she was placed under arrest. When asked to sit in the rear of the vehicle, officers say she refused and pushed away. Thomas was eventually placed in the squad car and taken to the Monroe County jail.

She was booked in on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting law enforcement.

Thomas was the winner of the Miss Indiana pageant in 2013.
