Reigning Mrs. World and former model were arrested for pageant brawl

Sri Lanka police has arrested reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie and former model Chula Padmendra a short while ago over the incident which took place at the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant on Sunday evening.

Cinnamon Gardens Police confirmed both were arrested after they appeared at the Police Station to record statements.

The pageant had received widespread attention throughout the country since it was held on Sunday evening, after Jurie uncrowned the winner, Pushpika De Silva on stage and crowned the first runner up instead claiming that Pushpika was a divorcee and hence was ineligible for the crown.
