Paris Hilton was arrested in Las Vegas for illegal drug possession.
TMZ is reporting that late last night, hotel heiress Paris Hilton was arrested for cocaine possession.
Hilton and her boyfriend, Cy Waits, were arrested a little before midnight last nigh. Waits was booked on charges of DUI, while Hilton was busted for possession of a controlled substance … cocaine.
Paris was released on her own recognizance shortly after her arrest and has hired Vegas legal eagle David Chesnoff. [TMZ]
Ugg… Paris was booked and then released ROR. And before you get all uppity about it, this happens all the time. If the police believe it was a “recreational” amount of whatever for personal use, they arrest you, book you, and release you.
But it gets better… Paris is saying it wasn’t her cocaine! That the purse they found the drugs in belonged to someone else.
as far as we know she was the only woman in the car that was stopped, but she had been partying at a club prior to the bust where other women and purses were present.[TMZ]
The 30 YEAR OLD Paris must be taking cues from the Lindsay Lohan school of defense. Remember the “THESE AREN’T MY PANTS!” statement LL made when being arrested?
I hope they do put her back in jail once a judge gets a hold of this.
