MANCHESTER — A former Miss New Hampshire USA title holder was arrested earlier this week on charges she assaulted her boyfriend during an argument, city police said. Nicole Houde, 26, who won the 2010 Miss New Hampshire USA crown, was charged with simple assault after allegedly punching, kicking, scratching and biting Scott Nickerson, 33, of Manchester, on Wednesday, police Lt. Michael Hurley said. Hurley said the two were apparently arguing over his allegations she was having an affair and Nickerson took her cell phone and wouldn't return it. He said she was later arrested while at work. More... This almost makes me interested in the next contest. Judge: "Miss Illinois. Your question: Would you ever hit your boyfriend?" Miss Illinois: "I would never- what the hell kind of a question is that???"
