Paris Hilton Arrested on Drug Charges
Paris Hilton is partying in Vegas this weekend, and looks like she had a little run-in with the law on Friday night. Las Vegas police reported that the heiress was booked and released on cocaine charges last night after the vehicle she was riding in was pulled over outside the Wynn Hotel, according to CNN.
Allegedly, the car smelled like marijuana (smoke was allegedly pouring out of the windows) so the vehicle was pulled over on The Strip at about 11:30pm. The driver was charged with a DUI (we later learned he was her BF Cy Waits), and Paris was taken to Clark County jail when authorities found her to also be in possession of a controlled substance. She was booked then released after it was determined she was not a flight risk. No bail was posted.
Paris’ Twitter page doesn’t reflect any of the night’s events, clearly. Although you can tell she was up pretty late — her last post was at about 3:30am. Her last tweet was: “Going to bed. Sweet dreams everyone. Xoxo Paris :)” Just before that she posted that she was in bed watching cartoons: “In bed watching Family Guy. Love this show.! So hilarious! Stewie is my favorite 🙂 love his accent.”
Update: Paris has hired a prominent Vegas lawyer, and allegedly claims the purse that contained the little bit of cocaine wasn’t hers.
