The recently crowned Miss Riverton from Riverton, Utah, and three of her friends were arrested and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Saturday for investigation of 10 counts of setting off an incendiary device, according to the Deseret News.

The city of Riverton, Utah, said it was "saddened" by the news and issued a statement saying, "Riverton City provides some sponsorship funding for the Miss Riverton Pageant. Riverton City does not recruit, select, or oversee pageant participants."
