List of Stanley Cup riot suspects includes one with “Miss Congeniality” on her résumé

Sophie LaBoissonniere

Anarchists. Thugs. Criminals. Hooligans. Ruffians. Hoods. Beauty queens.

Yes, Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot brought together an eclectic collection of individuals. The Province newspaper is reporting that Sophie LaBoissonniere, a 20-year-old beauty-pageant contestant, is among the latest alleged participants in the mob that tore apart the city’s downtown on June 15.

LaBoissonniere – who (you couldn’t make this up) was named Miss Congeniality in one of her pageants – is facing two charges, one for participating in a riot, the other for break and enter.

No truth to the rumor LaBoissonniere twirls a flaming baton through a car window for the talent portion of her pageants.
