Remember Miss Puerto Rico

and the whole pepper spray thing? That somebody tried to sabotage her, then is was suspect? Well, turns out she was telling the truth:

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — After a flurry of accusations and skepticism, an exhaustive investigation has determined that someone did try to sabotage a beauty contestant's bid for the Miss Puerto Rico Universe by dousing her garments with pepper spray, police said Wednesday.

The attempt failed because Ingrid Marie Rivera maintained her composure while appearing before judges and cameras, then went backstage to remove her clothes and apply ice bags to her swollen and splotched face and body. She went on to win the crown last month.

Police will present the results of their three-week-long investigation to the district attorney, who will decide whether to file charges against the suspect, a volunteer at the pageant, said San Juan police Detective Ivonne Reyes. Reyes refused to identify the volunteer or discuss a possible motive.
