SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A Texas judge will decide who will wear the Miss San Antonio crown after pageant officials tried to boot the winner over alleged violations, including packing on a few pounds.

Miss San Antonio Domonique Ramirez has sued to stop pageant officials from taking away her title and chance to compete to be Miss Texas - and possibly Miss America.

Miss Bexar County Organization president Linda Woods says the 17-year-old Ramirez violated her contract by arriving late to events, not wearing proper attire and gaining some weight.

Woods wouldn't say how much weight Ramirez gained since the pageant last spring. But Woods says other violations -- such as having a dirty sash and broken crown -- were bigger problems than her weight.

Ramirez and her attorney could not immediately be reached.
