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.

    Just weeks ago charges were "dropped" against her for possession of pot while over seas, now this? Anyone who is surprised by her latest charge is blinded to the fact that celebrities can be junkies. Despite her status, fame and fortune....she's nothing more than a drug head junkie.

    I hope the Coke is OK, that bag of Yayo needs not to hang out with the likes of her. Bad judgment call on the Coke.

    I think they must have stopped her because she fit the profile. Beautiful, blond, rich, clueless.
