Mr. Panama 2004 Arrested For Cocaine Smuggling at MIA
Since winning the title back in 2004, Duncan apparently traded in his Speedo for an airline uniform and was working as a flight attendant for Copa Airlines. Apparently that wasn't enough, because he was doing duel work as a drug mule.
According to the Miami Herald, authorities found a "white powdery substance" inside the lining of his suitcase after he got off a March 12 flight from Panama. Turns out it was 4.3 kilos of cocaine.
Duncan said he was recruited by another flight attendant and was supposed to meet him later at a Hilton hotel. Duncan said he was to be paid $5,000 Panamanian for his services.
Mr. Panama has something of a history of rogue winners. Mr. Panama 2009 was stripped of his title after stripping down a gay porn website.
