Stacie Juris: Bottomless Photo And Arrest Resurface For Bad Girl Miss Illinois 2013 And Miss USA Runner-Up [PHOTOS].

Beauty pageants often have contestants with squeaky clean backgrounds and a heart for philanthropy. But one contestant in the 2013 Miss USA contest, who ended up placing as a runner-up, may be a bad girl with some skeletons in her closet.

Stacie Juris, Miss Illinois and second runner-up in the competition, became a focus during Sunday's pageant when photos of the 22-year-old bottomless in a Blackhawks jersey and a 2011 arrest surfaced.

On Thursday, Miss USA 2013 winner Erin Brady (https://twitter.com/MissUSA/status/345257729843159040) posted a photo of Juris and Miss Massachusetts , Sarah Kidd, wearing hockey jerseys without pants on Twitter. The image of Juris wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey and Kidd in a Boston Bruins one was in honor of the Stanley Cup finals, with game 3 slated for Monday.

However, the photo taken in front of Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, which had over 60 retweets and 60 favorites, stirred controversy and catapulted Juris into a worldwide trending topic over the weekend and through Monday.

But the scandalous photo is not all creeping up about Juris. According to police records from the Orland Park Police Department, Juris was charged in April 2011 for retail theft after being busted with $288 worth of stolen clothing in her purse. However, (http://orlandpark.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-former-miss-teen-illinois-tried-to-swipe-clothing#photo-5835234) the Orland Park Patch reported charges were later dropped against Juris for unspecified reasons. Still, the brunette beauty's mug shot photo is rampant around the Internet.

Juris does have one honor under her belt, though, aside from being named second-runner up; She was the winner of the Miss Ilinois Teen USA 2009 pageant, making her the first ever teen titleholder to compete in the Miss USA competition.

The 22-year-old is a junior at Columbia College in Chicago majoring in fashion business. Juris said she hopes to open her own dress boutique someday, "specializing in prom, pageant, and bridal gowns," according to her official (http://www.missuniverse.com/missusa/members/profile/656261/2013) pageant biography . Her cause to benefit children with life threatening disease is "very near to her heart because a close friend was diagnosed with the most severe type of lupus, nephritis, at only 16 years old."
