DUNCAN, S.C. (WSPA) – The Miss South Carolina Teen International 2015 was arrested for forgery on Monday, May 23, according to the Duncan Police Department.

17-year-old Madison Cox is charged with counterfeiting/forgery after writing several doctor’s notes to cover her absences from school, police say.

The notepad that was used to write the excuses came from Parris Family Chiropractic, but the notes were not genuine.

The office was either closed or they did not see her on the days of her absences, according to police.

Cox was previously the Miss Spartanburg Teen International 2015.

She is a student at Byrnes High School.
