Paris Hilton was arrested for cocaine possession in Las Vegas last night, according to Fox 411. This is the third time in less than three months that Paris has had some type of illegal substance in her possession.
Paris was a passenger in a car last night when the car was pulled over because officers smelled marijuana. The driver was arrested for DUI and possession of drugs and Hilton for cocaine possession.
After being detained for about an hour, Hilton was booked and released, according to CBS News.
Hilton was arrested at the airport in Corsica with marijuana in July, just a few weeks after being arrested at the World Cup Match in South Africa for marijuana. Both times she was let go, according to PopCrunch.
Hilton was detained for just a short time and then let go, which is most likely not what the average citizen would experience, in all three incidents. It is not known how much cocaine was in Hilton’s possession.
The name of the driver, who was arrested for DUI, was not released, but Hilton was seen with her boyfriend, Cy Waits, getting ready to board a private jet to Las Vegas on Friday, according to TMZ. Waits, Hilton’s newest main squeeze manages several clubs in Vegas and the two have been spending quite a bit of time together lately.
Waits was at Hilton’s home when the knife yielding intruder tried to break in. He was able to hold the intruder at gunpoint until the police arrived, according to TMZ. Hilton’s new boyfriend could have possibly saved her from harm by being in the house and acting quickly that night.
