"Miss Congeniality" pleads guilty in Vancouver hockey riots, not so nice after defeat on ice
(CBS/AP) VANCOUVER, British Colombia - A former Miss Congeniality beauty pageant winner pleaded guilty Monday to some not so congenial behavior after Vancouver's National Hockey League team lost in the 2011 finals.
Sophie Laboissonniere (pronounced just like it's spelled) was among the first suspects charged in the riots that took place in June 2011 after the Canucks' lost. She was identified after reports surfaced that she was the winner of Miss Congeniality at a Vancouver beauty pageant.
Laboissonniere, who was 20 at the time, was not in court Monday when her lawyer entered the guilty plea on her behalf.
She was charged with participating in a riot and breaking and entering. David Baker, her lawyer, says she pleaded guilty to the riot charge, while the break-and-enter charge will be dropped. Details of her actions will come out at a sentencing hearing later this year.
