Paris Hilton Arrested For Cocaine Possession In Las Vegas
Paris Hilton was arrested on Friday night in Las Vegas for possession of a controlled substance after police found cocaine in her purse. Read more on Paris’ arrest below.
Paris Hilton, 29, was arrested right around midnight after police pulled over the vehicle on Las Vegas Boulevard. Sources say Paris was not the driver.
The vehicle was stopped after officers saw marijuana smoke coming out of the car where it was parked in front of the Wynn Hotel, where her boyfriend, Cy Waits, has a nightclub.
During the police search, cocaine was found in Paris’ purse. She was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Saturday morning but later released. The driver of the car, a male, was arrested on DUI drug charges.
This isn’t Paris’ first run-in with the cops. In July, Paris was held by police on the French island of Corsica after she was caught with less than a gram of marijuana in her purse. She was released without being charged.
