Wynn bans Paris Hilton from resorts, fires Cy Waits [poll]

September 1, 2010 | 12:41 pm


Paris Hilton is no longer welcome at the Wynn or Encore resorts, a Wynn spokeswoman said Tuesday, and the socialite's nightclub-entrepreneur boyfriend Cy Waits has been ditched as a managing partner at the properties' Tryst and XS nightclubs. 

This comes in the wake of their arrests Friday on the Las Vegas Strip -- Waits on suspicion of DUI and Hilton on suspicion of cocaine possession, a low-grade felony. The two were en route to his home in Henderson, Nev., after partying at XS, and Hilton asked to use the restroom at the nearby Wynn after they were pulled over. It was near Wynn security that a police officer saw 0.8 gram of coke fall from her purse, according to the police report.

Hilton was released on her own recognizance and is due in court Oct. 27, facing the judge who ...

... handled the early part of O.J. Simpson's Nevada trial, Vegas Confidential reports. Waits is out on $2,000 bail after spending a night in jail on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI; criminal charges against him have not been filed.

An arrest report released Wednesday said Waits failed field sobriety tests, and police found the end of a joint in the SUV he'd been driving.

Are we safe in assuming that chief exec Steve Wynn, he of the nearly billion-dollar divorce, simply doesn't need this kind of hassle?
