Earlier this year, high school senior Sydney Spies gained national notoriety when her school's yearbook committee rejected a photograph in which she wore a scarf as a tube/crop top. (Think Christina Aguilera circa "Genie in a Bottle." Sydney called her look "artistic" on the Today Show at the time.)
The controversy earned Spies a role in an upcoming Syfy network horror movie (score!!), so perhaps it's to be expected that she's already acting like a Hollywood starlet: last night, Sydney was arrested, along with her mother, for throwing a massive party with a bunch of underage kids and then acting like a brat to the cops. (Obstructing a police officer and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, respectively, if you want to get all technical about it.)
When police arrived at the Spies residence on the night of the bash, they found "numerous" underage partygoers and a ton of booze. It's a felony for an adult to host an alcohol-fueled party for minors, which might be why Miki Spies refused to identify herself when the police asked for her information and then made the cops chase her through her house before attempting to hide in her bedroom. Not to be outdone, Sydney also tried to block a police officer from entering her house, pulled and tugged against officers who handcuffed her, and tried to jump out of the cop car once inside.
Shockingly, this is not the first time Miki's been arrested for similar behavior. The last time she got in trouble for "trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer," she told the cops she was being unfairly targeted because she was a lesbian, that the officer "sucked" at his job, and that she had more than 6,000 "friends" on Facebook and was going to write about the incident. "As of Monday, Miki Spies had 2,661 friends on Facebook," the Durango Herald notes. Burn.
Both women will appear in court later this month. We don't expect this to deter the reality TV show offers that are surely headed their way.
