Newly crowned Miss Cayman Islands Universe, Tiffany Conolly, is facing numerous assault charges and the possibility of relinquishing her title if she is convicted, overshadowing her victory on Saturday.

Conolly was charged with common assault, damage to property, disorderly conduct - two counts respectively - and one count of assaulting a police officer, following an altercation at her ex-boyfriend’s house last year.

It is alleged that she assaulted both her former lover and another family member before going on to assault a police officer at the detention centre following her arrest, the Cayman News Service reported.

However, since Conolly has not been found guilty of any charges, as the case is ongoing, she was permitted to enter the pageant.

She went on to be awarded Miss Photogenic, Miss Best Smile and Miss Best-In-Gown, as well as being crowned winner of the competition.

However, Conolly will not be able to represent the Cayman Islands at the Miss Universe pageant if she is convicted.

In that case, Chloe Powery-Doxey, the first runner-up and winner of Miss Best Legs, will fill the spot, the Cayman News Service confirmed.
