Miss Delaware Teen USA resigns over alleged sex tape

Miss Delaware Teen USA has handed over her crown after reports of her involvement in a sex tape surface.

Pageant spokeswoman Dara Busch confirms to WDEL that the 18-year-old beauty queen did give a resignation letter to her attorney.

In the video, someone who looks like Melissa King addresses the camera, saying she's 18-years-old, and soon after, the video becomes pornographic.

Runner-up Hailey Lawler of Newark has been contacted to take King's place as Miss Delaware Teen USA.
