According to MSNBC, Paris Hilton has been arrested for cocaine possession in Las Vegas – her third drug arrest in only two months. Obviously as dumb as a hammer, her first two arrests (one in South Africa and the other in Corsica) didn’t teach her a lesson, particularly as in both those cases she blamed somebody else. Paris Hilton should have known better as, unlike other countries where being a celebrity can get you off the hook, in America if you’re found with cocaine, it’s an automatic arrest. American police are a lot less likely to believe the “they’re my friend’s drugs” line too. And that’s why Paris Hilton is now in jail.
For those who may have missed the first two arrests, here’s a quick recap. Paris Hilton was arrested for marijuana possession while in South Africa for the World Cup in July. The charges against Hilton were dropped when a friend traveling with her said the drugs were hers, the friend was given a fine and Paris Hilton and her entire party were allowed to leave. Of course, most people right from the get-go believed the marijuana was Hilton’s, as she’s been known to smoke a bit, and believed she’d paid the friend or promised her something in exchange for her accepting responsibility.
Paris Hilton’s second arrest for drug possession came just two weeks later (like I said, “dumb as a hammer”), when she was arrested while on vacation in Corisca. This time, she was only in police custody for half an hour, then the charges were dropped and Hilton was released. It could have been because of the small amount of pot she was carrying, which doesn’t carry much of a sentence in Corsica. Or, it could have been that she was traveling with “influential friends”, who made sure she was let go. Either way, scot free in less than an hour. And we all know what happens when you do drugs and there are no consequences………… That would be arrest number three.
Last night in Las Vegas at arrest number three and, this time, there was no walking away from a possession of cocaine charge. Las Vegas police obviously didn’t care if she was Paris Hilton or the Queen of Timbuktu – carrying cocaine? You’re busted.
According to MSNBC, after being stopped by Las Vegas police when they saw marijuana smoke coming from her car (for the third time, like I said, “dumb as a hammer”), Hilton was taken away in a police car, booked into the Clark County Detention Center, and charged with possession of cocaine.
As of early Saturday morning, Hilton was still being held but was likely to be released later today. It’s also more than likely she’ll be released without bail. After all, she’s Paris Hilton. Where’s she going to run to?
No news yet on whether she’s blaming someone else for cocaine possession and subsequent arrest. But, she did have a friend in the car. Maybe she’ll blame him?
