US socialite and paparazzi darling Paris Hilton was arrested in Las Vegas on charges of cocaine possession, but released shortly afterwards, local police said Saturday.
“Police stopped a black Cadillac Escalade outside the Wynn Hotel about 11:30 pm Friday, because officers believed someone inside was smoking pot, and officers found an unspecified amount of cocaine in a purse of Ms. Hilton’s,” Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin told AFP.
“She was arrested… on a felony cocaine possession charge,” he said, adding that the Las Vegas Police Department planned to release further details later Saturday.
Hilton’s spokeswoman Dawn Miller did not respond to AFP’s calls for comment.
Paris claims that the purse did not belong to her.
Didn’t you use that line before Paris?
I’m willing to bet that a member from her entourage has been offered a handsome sum of money, and is preparing to take the fall.
