Paris Hilton arrested for cocaine possession in Las Vegas

Paris-hilton-cy-waits Paris Hilton was arrested late Friday night on suspicion of possession of cocaine after police noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the SUV she was in on the Las Vegas Strip and pulled the vehicle over, L.A. Now reports.

Cy Waits, Hilton's nightclub-entrepreneur boyfriend, also was with Hilton and was arrested on suspicion of drug-related DUI. Waits is the one who on Tuesday held a knife-wielding man at gunpoint outside Hilton's Sherman Oaks home until police arrived.

A crowd began to form around the arrest in progress after Hilton was recognized, according to Luxe Life. A small amount cocaine was allegedly found in her purse, though TMZ reports she's insisting now that the purse wasn't hers. She was released on her own recognizance after about three hours.

Waits and Hilton took a private jet from L.A. to Vegas on Friday afternoon. They'd been at the XS nightclub at the Encore that night, Luxe Life reports, and were en route to his home in Henderson, Nev., when they were arrested. Waits is an XS managing partner.

The smell of marijuana got Hilton caught up with the law in South Africa recently -- but that ...

... incident ended with her release, facing no charges, as the drugs were determined not to be hers.

Hilton tweeted around 3 a.m. Saturday that she was headed to bed after watching a little "Family Guy."

Waits was scheduled to appear in court Saturday.

she is just getting grosser and grosser every year.

Yea but she was just carrying it for somebody else, right?
I mean - it wasn't REALLY hers . . .

lol

No $ for tweeting 'cocaine' so to help pay her legal fees stemming from possession of the same, Paris went with a "Family Guy" tweet, ($20k) apparently unaware of the irony....

Will someone please put paris hilton in jail?

Love you Baby! Nothing like smoking a J and doing a few lines...hey its vegas.

How is this a news story for the Times?

No wonder the readership has declined. This is pure garbage.

Well, we can rule out that it wasn't found in her panties!

The police will need to do fingerprints and dna of the items in the purse. Usually a person isn't released from jail on weekends, they must wait until Monday when a judge is in court. There's no judges usually available on Saturday's either. This was quite foolish of Paris, I think she recently was off her probation from February 2007, which was 3 years from that date.

I don't really trust this guy Cy Waits, he looks like a gangster type actually. They could make a movie together as Bugsy Siegel and Virginia Hill.

And Paris is the example of what our little girls want to be like. Paris you suck and you are a spoiled brat.

Women really should start wearing nylons again. You can see the ugly scars and marks on Paris' legs. Plus is she trying to look like Marilyn Monroe or something, it doesn't look good either, phony.

So much for the denial of drug abuse while on Larry King. Hey Paris was this part of your commitment to charitable work?

Guess she's staying in Vegas.

Here we go again. Money talks and if you have it you walk. Now, if an average L.A. Times reader (no matter your race or socio-economic level) not a rich reader, were stopped and detained by the police and you stated that the purse in your car , just after the police just found drugs in it,did not belong to your girlfriend in the car with you-well let's say the both of you would be bars bars for the evening and into the morning.
So, moral to the story is, "either date the rich or become rich yourself", because the law in Las Vegas as in many other cities will give you a "get of jail" pass quickly.

Note: Ms. Hilton some states and their police do not care who you are and are not afraid of your money, and will jail for a very long time.

She is a waste of carbon!

I actually think she's still kinda hot!

Still a party girl, some things never change. Oh well, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Looks like Paris will be staying in Vegas for a little while.

I love it...the old, "it's not mine" trick. Well, we'll see if it works this time. She's batting 1.000 so far after beating the rap in South Africa. At least she had to spend three hours or so in custody.

Nothing will happen to her. Maybe 10 days in jail, and 5 days in rehab.

Rinse. Repeat.

What a dumb cluck! "It's not my purse." So, you stole a purse and you're too blotto to know what you'r own purse looks like? Who has "you're" purse now? No "polite" words can describe this moron. I hope Nevada throws her in jail.

IT IS HARD TO FEEL SORRY FOR PARIS HILTON...SHE JUST IS DUMB AND SAYING THE PURSE WAS NOT HERS...THEN WHY DID SHE HAVE IT..? GUESS SHE STOLE IT...OH WELL, MAYBE SHE WILL LEARN FROM THIS MESS...SHE HAS EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD, BUT DOING DRUGS IS THE ONE THING SHE DOES NOT NEED...HOPE SHE GETS HERSELF TOGETHER...MAYBE A SUNDAY AT CHURCH WOULD HELP.
BLESS HER...PENNY GILMORE

Please, for the sake of Los Angeles...let what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas.

I will try and be nice here, but that Paris is one disgusting piece of white trash with some cash and hash - look at those legs, and those manly shoulders and those skinny sickly arms, what the hell is she? looks like some kind of wilda beast to me and she is stupid as nails - i hate her

The dignified Ms. Paris Hilton lives the life sane and guilt-free people want to lead as free human beings. She represents Freedom and so arouses the enmity of those who hate freedom. This lady enjoys the life possible only in a democracy and so deserves to be emulated, not scorned. Her behavior harms no one and in fact supplies the public with endless vicarious thrills.

Those enemies of freedom have obviously unjustly targeted her for harassment just as they have others in the public eye. Paris should be given plenty of space to live her life as a free private citizen. Law enforcement operates against her and other celebrities with totalitarian zeal in the United States and monitors their movement as though they were criminals.

Hey I thought what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, I guess its like every other stinking town in America now.

Paris needs to grow up; a 30 year old that acts like she is 16; what a loser. how pathetic any business even pays her.
