A former West Texas beauty queen has been accused of shoplifting a $69 shirt from a store in an El Paso mall, according to the Associated Press.

Lorena Tavera, Miss El Paso USA 2008, was arrested Friday after workers allegedly witnessed the 21-year-old stealing from the store.

Tavera was confronted and detained by police, who allegedly found the shirt concealed in a shopping bag. 

She was released from jail Saturday after posting $728 bond, and of course, denies the allegations. 

El Paso County Jail records show Tavera also had two outstanding traffic court warrants.
