After racking up a pot charge (which was dropped) at the World Cup earlier this summer, Paris Hilton has now been arrested for a possession on cocaine charge in Las Vegas on Friday night (August 27).
With the events taking place outside of the Wynn Hotel, the hotel heiress was the passenger in a car stopped by local police – as the driver,boyfriend Cy Waits, was charged with non-alcohol related DUI.
From there, cops searched Miss Hilton before ending up finding an undisclosed amount of a substance which ended up being cocaine.
Then being booked in jail, Hilton was quickly released on her own recognizance after immediately hiring celebrity Sin City lawyer David Chesnoff – who has defended the likes of David Copperfield, Suge Knight and Vince Neil.
As for the current standing, insiders tell that Paris claims the cocaine was found in a purse which didn’t belong to her – though she and her legal eagle will soon have to convince the judge in believing their story.
Ironically, it looks like shacking up with a Vegas nightclub mogul has definitely paid off for Hilton, as Cy Waits was the one who stopped her would-be burglar earlier this week.
According to TMZ, Waits was sleeping over at Hilton’s pad when he heard a disturbance and raced to the rescue.
Cy drew his gun and walked outside to intercept Nathan Parada, who was peeping through a window and wielding two large knives.
Once Waits had control of the situation, he kept Parada on the ground until the cops arrived. A grateful Paris exclaimed, “Thank God Cy was there, he saved my life.”
