Bikini Contest Marred When Woman Clobbers Fellow Competitor In Head With High-Heeled Shoes

A bikini contest competitor is facing a battery charge for allegedly clobbering another female contestant over the head with high-heeled shoes, Florida police report.

According to cops, Erica Kaitlyn Mize, 24, tangled with the victim last month during the Miss Sailfish Regatta Bikini Contest in Stuart on Florida’s Treasure Coast.

Investigators allege that after the 11 bikini-clad contestants left the stage in Stuart’s waterfront Causeway Park, Mize tussled with the 23-year-old victim (who is the current girlfriend of Mize’s former boyfriend).

As first reported by Will Greenlee at TCPalm, the victim told cops that Mize (pictured at right) warned her that “you should go to the gyno because you’re in for a rude awakening.”

The victim said that Mize “hit her on the head with her high heel shoes,” according to a Martin County Sheriff's Office report. The account of the victim--who had a small lump on her head--was backed up by witnesses, cops noted.

While the report does not further identify the alleged weapon, photos from the bikini contest show that Mize wore a pair of strappy turquoise platform heels (seen at left).

Mize, cited for misdemeanor battery, was on probation at the time of her bikini contest collar. In mid-April, she was placed on probation for a year following a conviction for marijuana possession.    

Mize, an aspiring model, works for a Stuart accounting firm, according to a police report.
