(Newser) – University of Arizona law school reps say it’s too early to know what they will do about Kumari Fulbright, the former beauty queen and model who has been charged with a slew of felony offenses over the kidnapping, torture, and robbery of an ex-boyfriend, the Tucson Citizen reports. Fulbright was in her second year at James E. Rogers College of Law.

"Her status at the university as of now is unchanged," said an Arizona dean. "Right now we don't have much information." Court documents charge Fulbright, who detained the ex-boyfriend for 10 hours with the help of three men, bit him several times, stuck a knife in his ear, and threatened him with a pistol while he was bound and gagged.
