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.

    So she will be forced to spend another few hours in jail. Let's face it between her and linsey Lohan they could kill someone and california courts won't do a thing. This is america where only the poor get convicted.

    For those of you complaining of how this made "news";

    As you can see this page has had many hits from the comments. So to CNN, it seems as if people are INTERESTED in the story so they'll post more like it.

    I mean, you did click on the story, read it, & left a comment.

    She is a complete waste of a human being. I feel sorry for her. Her parents are equally to blame – also complete wastes of human beings from what I've read. Note to the super wealthy file: do like Warren Buffett and don't leave your children any money so they won't turn out like this. Useless.

    I agree with Jennifer, Paris is a complete waste of a life. What I don't understand is why don't the police consider Paris Hilton a flight risk? Our judicial system is totally absurd.
