Miss New Hampshire has turned from beauty queen to criminal after she was arrested for the second time in less than two months for battering a boyfriend.
Nicole Houde’s alleged victim this time was her new partner. This is a different man than she was arrested for beating, kicking and scratching in April.
The 26-year-old from Manchester was crowned miss New Hampshire 2010 and competed for the Miss USA crown.
However, as her ex-boyfriend told Radar Online, she has a temper — especially when she’s been drinking.
Scott Nickerson, 33, called the police on his girlfriend on April 25 after the two got into a fight about whether she was cheating. He says she got violent and assaulted him.
On June 30, police arrested Miss Houde for domestic violence again — this time after she battered her new boyfriend, the man Mr Nickerson she she cheated on him with, the website reports.
‘The public only sees Nicole in her sober state for the most part, so most people she knows think she is an angel beauty queen when in fact she is nothing more than an out of control partier who turns violent and has cheated on me and previous boyfriends and no one realizes this,’ Mr Nickerson said.
After her reign as Miss New Hampshire, Miss Houde started her own person training and makeup business. She also offers her services as a beauty pageant consultant.
Her personal website offers the tagline: ‘Live Life Beautifully.’
Mr Nickerson showed Radar bruises and scars Miss Houde’s attack had left on him.
‘When Nicole starts to drink, especially liquor, she becomes extremely jealous for no reason and then violence ensues. If she doesn’t get whatever she is looking for at that moment she begins to fight to get an answer or attention.’ he told the website.
Miss Houde was charged with domestic assault and violating the condition of her bail. She was still awaiting trial on the charges from the April attack.
