Hilton arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession

Paris Hilton was released from a Las Vegas, Nevada, jail Saturday morning after being arrested late the night before on suspicion of cocaine possession, police said Saturday.

The hotel heiress was riding in a black Cadillac Escalade that was pulled over in front of the Wynn Hotel on the Vegas strip about 11:30 p.m. after police detected the smell of marijuana coming from the SUV, Lt. Wayne Holman told CNN.

The driver, whom police did not identify, was arrested for driving under the influence, he said.
Hilton was taken to the Clark County jail. She was released after authorities determined she was not a flight risk, Holman said.

Last month, Hilton was briefly detained in South Africa for allegedly smoking marijuana at the World Cup. Her publicist called the July 2 incident "a complete misunderstanding," and the case was dropped.

    Why is she still news? Why is she not in jail for all of her illegal activity? Well, what goes around, comes around. Folks, she will get it in the end.

    Well all it take is for a person who is NOT rich and famous – a commoner, to commit only 1 felony. IF they are caught and arrested, and most likely convicted due to social status, then they might as well commit 3 felonies or more a day, because once they have been convicted of only one, then they are blacklisted, can't get a job, and so have to turn to illegal activities, like selling drugs aka. "felonies" just to make a living. Yeah, and that is even AFTER they have served their time. That is American "justice". In this "free" country 1 out of every 18 men are either incarcerated, on probation or parole. I'm not sure about the women, but I think for both genders combined, it is 1 in 31. How many of THEM do you think are rich and famous like this snobby goblin Hilton? They should just send people like her over to Afghanistan and let the Taliban deal with her.

    This time, instead of pretending to read the Bible, she should really read a good book that will help her out like The Truth About Wicca and Witchcraft-Finding Your True Power by James Aten. Just a suggestion!

    After reading these comments I can't believe people are spouting the race crap again. She is rich that's why she gets away with her crap, her being white is of no issue and people who think that whites are catered to should really wake up because if discrimination is still around its not to help whites, the only people I see having their asses kissed are the rich and muslims and if your a rich muslim america will even forgo our own personal freedoms to cater to their every desire. But just try having them respect your beliefs when your in their countries, lol not gonna happen.

    So What! Another celeb gets busted for drugs and everyone has something to say! Listen, there are worse things in this world to worry about other than this really!! Why is everyone so judgemental, I know why, it's called "Jealousy", she is a celebrity! What makes you think she should be treated the same as any of you?? YOU are not in the spotlight, and YOU are not filthy rich, and yet you all think she is no different than any of you! Thats why they call it 'STATUS'. Let her go!!!!

    The real question is what does it cost to get someone else to take the fall for Paris? What would you take to do it?

    News flash on our local (Las Vegas) CBS affiliate, Paris Hilton is banned from all Wynn properties and her boyfriend (who WAS a manager of night clubs at these properties) has been relieved of his duties. And on the local news last night, it was reported that it is thought that she may lose much of her work (she gets paid thousands to show up at these clubs.) I am pleased to see bad behaviour trump beauty/name.!

    You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really something that I think I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I'm having a look forward for your subsequent post, I'll attempt to get the hold of it!
