LAS VEGAS, NV: Prosecutors in Clark County, Nevada must have their hands full after their weekend arrest of Paris Hilton for suspicion of cocaine possession. According to the arrest report, the 29-year-old socialite was arrested Friday night when police pulled up next to a Cadillac Escalade that smelled strongly of marijuana.
Hilton’s boyfriend, Cy Waits, 34, was the driver and failed sobriety tests. It was clear this Las Vegas nightclub owner was driving under the influence. Because of the gathering crowd, Hilton was ushered inside the Wynn hotel and questioned by police. After applying some lip gloss from her purse while waiting for a female officer, Hilton allegedly tried to conceal what appeared to be cocaine, according to the arrest report. Once the officers discovered what she had done, Hilton denied that the purse belonged to her and that she had borrowed it from a friend. Strangely enough though, a half tablet of Albuterol which was prescribed to her was found inside the purse as well which she did admit to. She was read her Miranda rights and taken to Clark County Detention Center. She was out Saturday morning.
During the World Cup in South Africa, Hilton was briefly held and questioned after she was allegedly seen smoking marijuana at one of the matches. The case was said to have been “a complete misunderstanding” by her publicist and was dropped shortly thereafter.
