Paris Hilton arrested in Las Vegas on possession of cocaine charges

wenn2957791

Everyone knows that Paris Hilton is a cokehead, right? Well, now everyone knows. Paris Hilton was arrested last night for possession of cocaine. She was in Las Vegas, riding in a car being driven by a friend when the car was stopped by Las Vegas police. The police had notices that the car was leaving a “smoke trail” and they assumed people were hot boxing the car, I suppose. Officers found cocaine in Paris’s possession. Here’s more from the AP (via HuffPo):

Police arrested Paris Hilton on cocaine possession charges late Friday night after stopping the car she was in on a Las Vegas street, authorities said.

The socialite was booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Saturday on the cocaine charge, Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin said. She was released before dawn on her own recognizance.

The 29-year-old Hilton was in a car driven by a friend when it was stopped about 11:30 p.m. MDT Friday after officers detected what they suspected to be marijuana smoke wafting from it, he told The Associated Press.

“Officers noticed a vehicle leaving smoke trail of a controlled substance (and) made a stop based on that,” Martin said.

During the stop, officers found what appeared to be a drug on Hilton and later tests showed that it was cocaine, Martin said. He didn’t know how much was found. He said Hilton was apparently recognized by passers-by and a crowd quickly gathered in the area where the vehicle had been pulled over.

Police watch commander Lt. Wayne Holman said Hilton released early Saturday morning. He didn’t know how long she had been held nor any details about a possible court date.

He said the man who was driving the car was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of drugs. But he didn’t have any other details, including his name.

Hilton’s manager didn’t immediately return AP calls for comment early Saturday. Her publicist, Dawn Miller, did not immediately return an e-mail message. The arrest came during a week in which a burglary attempt was made on Hilton’s Los Angeles home.

Officials said 31-year-old Nathan Lee Parada faces a felony burlgary charge in the Tuesday incident. Authorities have said that someone carrying two big knives banged on Hilton’s window. She posted a photo of the arrest on Twitter and described it as “scary.”

Hilton was arrested this summer after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on suspicion of possession of marijuana. The case was then dropped at a midnight court hearing.

Hilton pleaded no contest in 2007 to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. After spending about 23 days in jail, Hilton told U.S. television host Larry King that the experience caused her to re-evaluate the role partying played in her life. She said she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.”

While most famous for her tabloid exploits and reality TV series “The Simple Life,” Hilton has appeared in the films “Bottoms Up,” “The Hottie & the Nottie” and “House of Wax.”

Yes, Paris was held and later released on possession charges in South Africa. Plus, there was something sketchy in Corsica in July too. Hopefully, these Las Vegas charges will stick and maybe we’ll get some kind of Lindsay Lohan-esque intervention? Probably not. By the way, when did possession of cocaine become such a light crime? Chace Crawford gets the book thrown at him for one (un-lit) joint, and Paris gets released on her own recognizance for cocaine? WTF?

Paris Hilton looking adorable in turquoise this afternoon, as she arrives to get a massage in Los Angeles, Ca on August 24, 2010. To Paris's surprise she was changeless for her parking meter and had to quickly go ask a local store owner for help in in breaking a dollar for quarters for the meter.  Fame Pictures, Inc

The heiress reportedly asked Brandy to walk out of the popular eatery with her in order to divert the paparazzi's attention from her ride home. Unfortunately, Paris didn't seem to have thought of the photographers following her down the street to her secret rendezvous!Photograph:  Devone Byrd, PacificCoastNews.com

  2. Jazz says:

    Not that I take pleasure in other people’s downfall but HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    She’ll do anything to stay relevant won’t she? Hopefully it will stick this time. Why can’t she get arrested in Texas or somewhere hardcore? I’ve been waiting years, YEARS, for this bitch to be over.

  3. Crash2GO2 says:

    ‘Druggie Girl’ back atcha Paris.

  4. coup de grazia says:

    vegas law vs. texas law.

    and of course this dumbass pouts for the camera like she’s making a porno even while being booked.

  5. Kaboom says:

    Chace Crawford was arrested with his doobie in Plano, Texas .. there’s your difference.

  6. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Its about time!

    Her ‘holier than thou’ act is finally broken – rejoice

  7. Lantana says:

    Is anyone surprised? I’d be more surprised to find out she DIDN’T use coke. (Her and hundreds – 1000′s? – of others living that lifestyle – on the go constantly, socialize and party 24/7 and stay rail-thin on top of all of it. I’d probably do coke too.)Although I have wondered if anorexia is the gateway to coke or if it’s the other way around? I suppose it depends on one’s finances.

  8. Bex says:

    When did she get a boob job?

  9. julie says:

    @bex- she’s got these “magic” bras that make her boobs seem 10x larger than they are. you can tell it’s not a boob job because one day the boobs are there, the next they’re gone. plus she wears tight ass clothes so they’er all squished and up in your face.

  10. Majosha says:

    That face could shatter glass.

  11. Eden says:

    @Bex
    Right??? In the Marilyn and blue necklace photo’s they look huge!
    Can a bra do that?

  12. moopsie says:

    I guess thats why she’s been looking like sh*t lately

  13. bellyache says:

    Dude.. How “magic” is that magic bra.. ? I need me some of those. I mean seriously, first pic and blue dress pic, her boobs look believably real. Or is that unbelievably. I dunno.

  14. S says:

    I don’t think she’s a coke head…I think she’s trying desperately to get famous again. There were rumours years ago that she always has it around and encourages those around her to get all f*cked up on it, and then she looks pretty and normal while the people photographed with her look messed up. Pretty devious.

  15. Kate says:

    Though I don’t partake, I refuse to condone or condemn drug use; whatever gets you through the day, I suppose. But there are consequences to choosing that life.

    She’s not the only “celebrity” (term used loosely) to use coke. She’s just not smart enough to do it in the privacy of her own home. Many celebrities do drugs, but they don’t drive around Vegas with it on them like morons.

  17. LindyLou says:

    What a dumbass. Seems she gets busted with drugs every time she leaves her house. You’d think that eventually something would clue in to her tiny little brain that maybe she should leave the bad sh!t at home.

  18. HotPockets says:

    If she was busted for this in Texas, which Chase was, it would be a different story. Texas is one of the worse states to get in trouble for drug possession, they don’t take it lightly.

    I’m sure Paris will be able to get out of this one, too. It wont damage her credibility or image, because she doesn’t have any to begin with, and her image is based off of her lavishing, partying ways.

  19. HotPockets says:

    Also, I have always been curious about Miss Hilton’s breasts. One day they are non existent and the next day they are in your face. I wondered too if a bra could actually produce that effect? She transitions from looking like an A cup to a DD cup on the norm!

  20. Rita says:

    A car leaving a “smoke trail”? Why does the image of Cheech and Chong suddenly come to mind? Clark County, let’s see some equal justice under the “law”. One year in jail…enough of this rich fame pig.

  21. Liana says:

    inflataboobs.

  22. Trillion says:

    Too rich to be subjected to the “little people” rules and she knows it.

  23. annaloo says:

    If a crowd gathered, did anyone video the incident?

  24. aussieGal says:

    How hard is it to be like all the other celebrities who never get caught? Keep that shit at the house parties and club bathrooms and don’t take it out with you in public. DUH.

    Hell, that goes for anyone in the world who uses coke.

  25. Mouse says:

    Ugh, not this nasty ho again.

  26. Katalina76 says:

    Paris Hilton: “So there, Kim Kardashian!!! I’m relevant again!”

    So what if it takes being busted for coke possession, amirite?

  27. moopsie says:

    if you compare her boobs in her sex tape to her boobs in her recent topless photos, its pretty obvious she had them done.

  28. cantbelievethis says:

    She’s already saying it wasn’t her purse.

  29. BrandyMc says:

    Sure it wasn’t her purse! What was it her boyfriends? She was the ONLY female in the car and I am sure the cops found her id in it or they found something belonging to her!

  30. Bullett says:

    I can’t begin to figure out why, but with Lohan I feel badly for her, and with Hilton I’m smiling over the news.

  31. Fae says:

    If I was as irrelevant as Paris it’d take a hell of a lot more than coke (hugely overrated, by the way) to help me get through the days.

  32. Snarf says:

    Paris was looking for a way to out famewhore Kim Kardashian wasn’t she?

  33. gem says:

    ugh please go back 2 whereever the hell you have been for the past 3 years and never coome back. Funny she’s doin all this druggie shit now she sees how much attention/press lindsay is getting smh

  34. Angelica says:

    I don’t like her.

  35. original kate says:

    still fug.

  36. fugly says:

    in summation, money talks; sh!t walks (sh!t being paris, obvs).

  37. fugly says:

    since other have mentioned this hypocrite’s b00bs, does any one here recall a few years back when paris’ outspoken opposition to large breasts and breast implants was a news story? she was so disgusted by large breasts and implants, she went on how she would never get them, how big boobs look slutty. now look at her. miracle bra, implants, same difference.

  38. chris says:

    She’s getting too old for this crap.

  39. Lenore says:

    Is she seriously pouting for the cop camera in those mugshots? Classy.

    @ Lindylou – “You’d think that eventually something would clue in to her tiny little brain that maybe she should leave the bad sh!t at home.”

    I don’t see why, since every time she gets caught, nothing truly consequential happens to her. A few minutes of jail time at the most, and she gets to brag about that to her privileged rich pals.

  40. albeli says:

    I love how she always tries to claim the pot/coke isn’t hers.

  41. Lady LaLa says:

    Paris, grow up. You’re almost 30 years old, for Crissake

  42. la chica says:

    she just had to grab the spotlight back from Hohan.

  43. hairball says:

    It is SO offensive to me the difference in treatment of people with money. If I were caught with cocaine in my purse, I would be in major trouble. I wouldn’t just roll my eyes, sigh, call my high profile lawyer to say it wasn’t my purse and then continue on with my business as if I had just been caught littering.

    It’s dispicable. How on this planet can her parents be proud of how she turned out? If my daughter had done a sex tape, arrested for drunk driving, jailed, caught with marijuana, and now cocaine…I would be really proud. I’m sure they just make excuses for her.

  44. canadianchick says:

    Please send her to prison for a long time.

  45. Tiffany says:

    Is she still on parole from the DUI. If she is, this is a violation and she might have to go back….HAHAHA, who am I kidding, she ain’t going to be anybody’s bitch.

  46. BethL says:

    Paris’ breasts are really small. There were some recent topless photos around. I don’t know what she does to make them look huge. I guess she is so open about her drug use because apparrently just telling the cops it’s her friends’ gets her off the hook.

  47. carrie says:

    but it was her bag!(LOL)

  48. Canucklehead says:

    “Chace Crawford gets the book thrown at him for one (un-lit) joint, and Paris gets released on her own recognizance for cocaine? WTF?”

    I suspect it has something to do with the Hilton’s “drawing a lot of water” in Vegas.

    One rule for the rich and one for everyone else.

  49. Me says:

    In Vegas, if they kept every single person in jail over a drug related charge, there would be massive over crowding. Plus if you couldn’t get away with it in the city, it would refute their claim as Sin City. They’re entire industry is based on getting away with more there then anywhere else. There is no way Hilton is doing any real time for this.

  50. Eden says:

    @S
    I know what you mean, I’m not sure I believe she’s a drug addict either.

    She certainly has all the signs of being one with her behavior and the consequences that are piling up but I don’t know if it’s addict stuff or something else..it does seems like a cry for help and attention to be sure but are drugs/booze at the root of it..?
    I’m a little curious, I admit it. :)
    I’m also very curious how this gets handled legally.

    But…what I’m most fascinated with right now is how REAL her miracle bra boobs look!!

  51. Chris says:

    I agree Aussie Gal, I know people who have used drugs for years and never been caught.

    My first reaction when I saw this story was that Paris is trying to take Lindsay Lohan’s spotlight in the media.

  52. aussieGal says:

    @hairball “If I were caught with cocaine in my purse, I would be in major trouble.”

    Actually no, you probably wouldn’t be in major trouble, especially if it was a small amount.

  53. hellen says:

    I think Paris wears those silicone pieces called “chicken cutlets” in her bras – they fit into the bottom of the bra cup, and prop up the rest of the balcony to amazing heights!

  54. Dirty Martini says:

    It takes a lot to make LiLo look good in comparison………..

  55. buzzybee says:

    Chace Crawford got F–k all too. No book thrown there at all. By the way who was in his car that was never identified?? HMMM.

    Paris will not even get her fingers slapped. Paris is a fixture in Vegas & dirty money is all in Vegas. Everyone knows it. If Lohan had different parents as in Paris’s mom & dad Lohan would have taken a lite hit.

    Paris ani’t going to any jail or rehab like Lohan you watch.
    This whole story already stinks. It’s not my purse,it’s not my purse,it’s not my purse. I was holding it for a friend. It’s not my purse..

    Didn’t we origionally hear the same from Chace it’s not mine, it’s not mine..

    Celebritys caught are big cry babies & feel entitlement period

    OH KIM & That bunch are next. That’s a family of wing nuts down your throat kinda people in more ways then one.. lol

    Any publicity is good publicity you know.

    This could open up all kinds of stuff & people squealing squawking in Vegas.. NOT ME NOT ME.. lol

  56. Jover says:

    You would think that this air thief would take off her halloween mask when she goes out in public.

  57. onyx says:

    her parents must be so proud!

  58. Anon says:

    Kaiser, you’re not really shocked that Paris gets a slap on the wrist and Chace Crawford had the book thrown at him are you?

    Paris’ family has friends in high places…where as the rest of us mere mortals only have high friends in places.

  59. Ron says:

    how many times has she been arrested in her illustrious life? pathetic.

  60. wunderkindt says:

    Paris must be jealous of Lindsay Lohan.

  61. Cprincess says:

    Bullett
    I’m totally with you on this one….
    I do feel a smidgen of sympathy for Lohan but with Wonky I can’t help feeling it’s a long time coming- only problem is that she’ll get off with Jo jail time- I was thinking the other say she looks really skinny and like she’s been doing alot of blow…
    There was a horrible story recently about her baiting Lindsay Lohan at some Hollywood party and picking on her with her friends- totally seemed like a school bully type situation… useless vapid moron….

  62. Maritza says:

    She hasn’t gotten a boob job, it is a push up bra, the ones that are ballooned on the sides. She said she was afraid of operations of any kind.

  63. Truthzbetta says:

    Fugliest drag queen in the world.

  64. sasha says:

    I never realized how perfectly suited she is for Vegas. That town has her written all over it. I spent 3 months there during a low point and Paris is VEGAS. Honestly, I think L.A. is too classy for her.

  65. Throw her under the jail PLEASE.

  66. lucy2 says:

    If it were anyone else I’d say no way, but with her I totally could buy that she’s doing all this in a pathetic attempt to be relevant again (not that she ever really was).

  67. Javagirl1 says:

    Miracle bra, implants same difference?? Um…ok…

  68. ViktoryGin says:

    Majosha: “That face could shatter glass” LMAO!!

    She’s harsh, isn’t she? She’s beginning to get that “ageing apathetic heiress” look, which is befitting because that’s exactly what she is. I swear that bitch could pass for 40.

  69. DetRiotgirl says:

    She’s using a miracle bra/chicken cutlets. Even an A cup can look like that if you throw balloons under your bits and squish everything together up top with tight clothing. Her boobs look just as small as ever in bikini shots. I think this girl is pretty much a waste of space, but I’m 95% sure her boobs are real. In fact, her lack of surgery may be the only “real” thing about her. Fake hair, fake tv shows, fake personality… But real tatas.

  70. DrM says:

    What a twat! I suppose she’ll say she was ‘holding’ for a friend (again)

  71. harrris pilton says:

    paris is like nikki if nikki had no looks , no talent, no personality and a drug habit.paris is now changing her email to loser@loser.net
    what do you get if you add one loser to paris hilton ?
    two empty , vain,materialistic losers.lol.
    what did paris’s left kjnee say to paris’ right knee?
    answer – hi i haven’t seen you in a while.lol.

  72. harrris pilton says:

    i prefer pepsi.lol.

  73. Chris says:

    I know it’s wrong that rich people don’t get punished in the same way that poor people do for drug possession, but in actually fact drug prohibition causes more harm to society than legalization would. So whilst I don’t condone the double standards of the legal system I don’t think Paris, Lindsay or anybody should go to jail for using drugs, nor do these guys: http://www.leap.cc/cms/index.php

  74. Sara says:

    What’s wrong with her? I mean you have a shit load of money and you still drive around and get high like a 16 year old kid? It seems like there is something really empty and meaningless about her life. At least some celebs have children or travel or contriute to charities or at least even go to school. As far as I can tell she does nothing but dress up, endorse crap and party.

  75. aenflex says:

    2nd picture up from the bottom – those boobs, aint hers. She got implants? How did I know not know?

  76. misterE says:

    Why do we pay attention to these people? Why is Paris famous? What did she do? A hit song? Great movie? Is she a talent at all? Why? Why?? Why??!! I am upset trash is idolized.
