Former Miss Nevada USA Katie Rees is in trouble again. This time she's been arrested. Rees was pulled over for speeding overnight.

Officers tell Eyewitness News that when she was stopped, it turned out she was driving on a suspended license and had expired tags.

When the officer told her she could not drive away, police say Rees became violent, hitting and kicking the officer. Rees was arrested for the traffic violations and for resisting arrest.

Eyewitness News caught up with Rees as she was released Wednesday afternoon. She had no comment.

The former Miss Nevada USA was stripped of her title back in December of 2006 after racy pictures of her appeared on the Internet. The pictures showed her kissing other women and partially taking her clothes off.
