PROVO -- A former Miss Utah is suing the city of Provo for $5 million, claiming her arrest and prosecution were not warranted as her case was thrown out of court.
Elizabeth Craig and Brady Harper, in their lawsuit filed April 13 in 3rd District Court, accuse Provo and its police department of malicious prosecution.
The two were accused of illegally selling Nu Skin care products on eBay that had been donated for charity to a company called Nu Lite, and then pocketing the money.
But theft and other charges were dropped against them in December 2010.
The suit contends that as a former Miss Utah, Craig lost substantial income because of media interest in her arrest.
Officials from the Provo City Attorney's Office didn't immediately return a phone call Saturday.
