Paris Hilton's Lawyer Speaks About Her Coke Arrest: Things Aren't Always What They Seem!

Paris Hilton was arrested AGAIN for drugs…but this time she had coke in her possession!

UPDATE: Aug. 28, 12:40 p.m. Paris Hilton’s lawyer, David Chesnoff, has released the following statement: “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.”
Is Paris Hilton going off the deep end AGAIN? The 29-year-old heiress was arrested in Las Vegas last night, Aug. 27, when police pulled over the black Cadillac Escalade she was riding in after they noticed marijuana smoke coming out from the window…and then realized Paris had cocaine.

“Officers noticed a vehicle leaving smoke trail of a controlled substance (and) made a stop based on that,” Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin told The Associated Press of the stop that reportedly took place in front of the Wynn Hotel at 11:30 p.m.

When the police realized Paris had cocaine on her, she was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. According to reports, the trouble-making celeb was held over night and released Sunday morning.

Her rep was unavailable for comment, but this isn’t Paris’ first run-in with the law. Earlier this summer, she was arrested at the World Cup in South Africa for possession of marijuana — and in 2007, she served 23 days in jail after pleading guilty to an alcohol-related reckless driving charge.

It’s not a surprise to see famous celebs in the news busted for drug use. Socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton cannot keep herself from the headlines. Paris Hilton is the consummate specialist in the endeavor of being arrested for drugs. This time, she was booked for possession of drugs. She was arrested for possession of cocaine in Las Vegas. This is her third substance bust in as many months. She has already been arrested twice for possession of weed.

If weed is legal in California for medical use, she might have some doctor excuse for having it..

Interesting. If it were you or me and we had goteen caught with weed and coke, there would be no letting us out the next morning on our own recognizance, especially if this was a repeat. They would throw us under the jail and we would have to beg to find a lawyer to help us reduce the amount of time we would have to spend in the joint.
She needs help and to get a life.
Absolutely right Boo Hearne.

Let me guess….it’s totally, like, not her fault? It never is. That girl would get away with murder even if she was standing over the body holding the bloody knife.

Put yourself in her shoes. You have been filthy rich since the day you were born. Anything you ever wanted was given to you. You have never heard the word, ‘no’ in your life. You are not well educated. No college degree. You are moderately attractive because you have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery. You are not married. You have no children. (Thank goodness!) You have never had to go to an office on a daily basis. You have never worried about paying rent or having your home foreclosed. You wake up in the morning with nowhere to go and nothing to do. Year after year you party because there is nothing solid in your life. You don’t read. You are never seen at a movie theater unless it is to walk the Red Carpet. Have you ever seen a play on Broadway? You are considered ‘damaged goods’ by most of the world (including yours) so no man who is considered normal would want to date you. When you’re bored you do drugs or abuse alcohol. Nothing is going to change in her life or in 99.9% of her friends lives. It is how they live. They are not us. It is their world. We only live in it.

“What’s sad is with all those Hilton millions she could have a top notch eduction from Harvard, Stanford, amongst many other great schools in the US.” – Tiff.

Hilarious!!! You misspelled education. And this jelly-brain would pass her classes how??? Selling Dope??? You’re exactly the type of person that this column caters too. I read this drivel when I want a good laugh. Sadly, you supplied the good laugh this time.

Isn’t she a shining example to all young women throughout America? They should put her skinny ass away for a good amount of time and let us all get on with paying attention to matters that are really important and not this celecrity-trainwreck.

She probably turned to drugs after sulking that Kim Kardashian is the new “it” girl. LOL In all seriousness, this girl needs to get it together. This is the 3’d incident in a matter of a few months. First, it wasn’t her weed, second, she paid them off and now cocaine. What’s sad is with all those Hilton millions she could have a top notch eduction from Harvard, Stanford, amongst many other great schools in the US. She’s just a pretty party girl. No substance. What ever happened to that house she was going to build to rehab women in the prison system? This boyfriend doesn’t seem to be a great influence on her either. A night club owner?

Someone needs to get their stories straight or at least proofread what they write. Says that she was arrested on the 27th(Friday) and held over night and released on Sunday(29th) but today is only Sautrday the 28th. How do you know if she was released on Sunday if it is only Saturday?

Also, how do you differentiate between cigarette smoke and marijuana smoke driving down the road? Was unaware that they left different types of smoke trails.

What happened to the center Pothead Hilton told Larry King she was going to build? Oh, maybe the money went in her nose?

No surprise there! After repeatedly getting caught with pot, why would she hesitate to use coke? What’s next? Meth and maybe some heroin as well? Sounds like someone will be a drug rehab candidate sometime soon or sadly another celebrity drug overdose death? All that money doesn’t make one any smarter obviously!
