Paris Hilton Arrested & Released In Las Vegas On Cocaine Charges
Yesterday morning, we awoke to the news of Paris Hilton behind bars. Most of us cheered, most of us laughed and that's mainly because she's an idiot. Apparently a police officer pulled over the Escalade Paris just so happened to be in after noticing smoke that smelled like marijuana...and then they found a substance in Hilton's purse that tests showed to be cocaine. It's unknown as to how much was found.
She and her boytoy of the second were booked into the Clark County Jail. Paris was released without bail about 2:45 a.m.
Sources who have spoken with Paris since her arrest on the Vegas strip late last night tell TMZ ... she insists the purse -- with what we're told contained a small amount of cocaine -- was not hers.
As we first reported, she's hired powerful Vegas lawyer David Chesnoff to handle the case ... and he already got her sprung without posting bail.
And don't look for anyone else to talk about the matter. Here's what Hilton's Las Vegas lawyer, David Chernoff, had to say:
"Paris Hilton was released this morning on her own recognizance. This matter will be dealt with in the courts not in the media and I encourage people not to rush to judgment until all of the facts have been dealt with in a court of law. There will be no interviews and no more comments at this time."
