Paris Hilton Will Face Felony Drug Charges
Hilton, 29, was arrested in Las Vegas for possession of a controlled substance on Friday night. Police pulled over a car driven by her boyfriend, nightclub owner Cy Waits, after detecting marijuana coming from the vehicle. When a small container of cocaine was discovered in Hilton's purse, she was briefly detained at Clark County Detention Center before being released on bail.
When questioned about the cocaine, Hilton "said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum," an officer said. At various points, Hilton also said the purse was not hers, then that it was hers but had been in a friend's possession.
The police report by Lieutenant D. Flynn reads:
RadarOnline.com is reporting the Las Vegas District Attorny, David Roger, is unlikely to work out a plea deal in Hilton's case.Due to the fact that the suspected cocaine fell from the purse Hilton was carrying, that the suspect cocaine was found near a broken prescription pill that Hilton admitted was hers, that she admitted that other items inside the purse were hers (including a package of Zig Zag wrappers, which are commonly used to roll and smoke marijuana), and that she was the passenger inside the vehicle, which was stopped after Officer M. Polion smelled the strong odor of marijuana coming from it, I placed Hilton under arrest for possession of a controlled substance cocaine.
"Roger won't tolerate celebrities coming to Las Vegas and thinking they can get away with illegal behavior," a source close to the case told RadarOnline.com. "It's going to be extremely difficult for Paris to get out of these charges, even with the brilliant legal skills of her lawyer David Chesnoff."
The DA is running for reelection and has a solid record victories in Vegas. "This is a high profile case, right before a very important election, and it's very likely that there will be no plea bargaining down of these charges," the source reiterated.
Hilton was also detained and subsequently released in South Africa in July on suspicion of possession of marijuana.
