Paris Hilton Arrested For Pot at World Cup

by at . Comments

Paris Hilton was arrested in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for allegedly smoking marijuana a few hours ago at a World Cup match.

Not as surprising as the Netherlands' 2-1 win over Brazil, but unexpected!

The socialite was taken to the Mount Road Police Station in St. Croix, S.A. just before 8 p.m., Det. Mark Magadlela later confirmed to local news organizations.

It is believed that Hilton was indeed at the police station but has since been released. No further specifics were given as to why the ho-tel heiress was busted.

Details of Paris' arrest remain murky at best.

Paris Hilton's Los Angeles-based lawyer says the 29-year-old has served her probation period, after her 2007 conviction for alcohol-related reckless driving.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan, her probation is complete (as of January 2010), taking a lot of the potential heat off her from this screw-up, whatever it consisted of.

One TMZ source also reports that Paris wasn't smoking dope, but an officer has reportedly said that Paris was caught red-handed in possession of weed.

Another report suggests it was a member of her entourage caught with the stuff, rather than Hilton herself, but that the whole crew was subsequently booked.

More details to follow as the story develops...

UPDATE 7/3: Paris is off the hook for the whole thing, and has been released from custody, with police reportedly even apologized for misidentifying her. Her rep claims the culprit already pleaded guilty, paid a small fine and was released.

Sorry Paris!

I'm not surprised she's a fan of the ganja, it's just that I always took her to be more of a coke head. I thpught perhaps so much of her money has gone up her nose that she ran out of funds to fix the lazy eye and that long wonky nose, And don't forget to save some for the hammer toe.

lol...all this animosity over someone who inhales from a funny smoke? Really...why do you hate her? I can never speak ill about someone whom I've never met in person. If you're going to hate her at least say, "oh I've met her @ so & so place" but if you just hate a person because it's popular to hate them, then that's just plain stupid.

WHITE TRASH SLUT. THEY SHOULD HAVE DROPPED HER FILTHY BONY ASS IN A DEEP HOLE WHEN THEY HAD THE CHANCE, BUT LIKE ALL GOVERNMENTS, THEY CATER TO THE RICH AND LET THEM GET AWAY WITH MURDER, WHILE THE REST OF US GET PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. FUCK ALL OF YOU RICH SCUMBAGS FOR ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR YOURSELVES, AND YOUR OWN. GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL.

This girl is a total disgusting PIG tramp whore, and I am SICK of seeing her get away with all this crap just because she's fucking rich. Fucking South Africa let her stupid ass go, and they damn well shouldn't have. They should have thrown her worthless ass into the worst prison in their country!!!

WOW I must have just missed this. Paris and her group which included Leonardo DiCaprio was in the suite next to us. He clearly didnt want to be recognised or pictures taken, makes me wonder if he also had his fingers dirty. Paris was sitting on the rails with fans holding onto her from below taking pictures. Thought they were going to pull her over. Leonardo only escaped the event after the third attempt trying to get to the lifts unseen or should I say unrecognised.

LAMA: Look At My Addiction. Paris get some lama apparel to go with that weed. Look at my ass clothing company.
