A 17-year-old beauty queen has been arrested after allegedly faking doctors notes so she could skip school.

According to AsianTown, former Miss South Carolina Teen International Madison Cox was charged with forgery after she counterfeited letters from the Parris Family Chiropractic in Duncan, according to police.

Cops say she stole a notepad for the practice and then penned the letters to cover her absence from school.

Law enforcement told WSPA the office was either closed or they didn"t see her on the days she said she had off. 

Cox said she did not mean any harm and was trying to keep her scholarships that she had been awarded.

After her arrest, she posted:

"It's sad that I"m the only entertainment in y'alls lives. (sic)

"I've got to learn to stop being so childish and keep my mouth closed." 

She was given the beauty title in April last year.
