UPDATED Reigning Miss Teen Louisiana USA Lindsey Evans and three friends were arrested over the weekend for leaving a Bossier City restaurant without paying their bill.
Police said Evans, 18, of Blanchard left her purse at the restaurant and the four young women were arrested when they returned to get it.
Evans' reign as Miss Teen Louisiana was to end in November. A spokesman for the Miss Louisiana Teen USA organization said they spoke with Evans today about the incident but have not decided whether to take action against her. That action could include her losing her title.
Evans' parents declined comment on the incident.
Evans and her friends were arrested Saturday night at Posado's restaurant. They ran up a $46.07 bill and left without paying, Bossier City Police Department spokesman Mark Natale said.
The manager of the restaurant found Evans' purse, which had her identification inside, and called police. Officers were still at the restaurant when the group returned and police recognized Evans from her driver's license picture, Natale said.
Natale said the women admitted intentionally leaving without paying their bill and it was not a case of forgetting to pay.
Evans was booked on charges of theft and possession of marijuana that was found in her purse, Natale said.
Jordan James, 18, of Blanchard was arrested for theft, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of Xanax.
Morgan Goleman, 18, of North Lakeshore Drive in Caddo Parish, was booked on charges of theft.
Jennifer Martin, 22, of Arlington Place in Bossier City, was arrested on charges of theft, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and for having an open container.
Police said they found marijuana, a marijuana "grinder" and a marijuana roller in Goleman's car.
All four were released from jail on Sunday after posting bonds. ~ KTBS
