Paris Hilton Charged With Felony Drug Possession, Recycles Time-Honored "Not My Purse" Defense

by at . Comments

Paris Hilton was busted with 0.8 grams of cocaine in Vegas this weekend and faces a FELONY charge of possession of a controlled substance as a result.

According to the police report, the officer who stopped the Escalade pulled along the passenger side and smelled "the strong odor of marijuana" inside.

The cop wrote that he noticed immediately the passenger was Paris Hilton, and observed her trying to roll up the window as a massive crowd gathered.

Coke Possesser

Before Paris Hilton's arrest, she said she was "extremely embarrassed" and asked the officer if she could go to the bathroom at the nearby Wynn Hotel.

At the hotel, Paris told the cop she needed lip balm so he handed Paris her purse and "As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand."

The report also says that inside the purse was a "tablet of Albuterol" - a medication used to control wheezing - and Zig Zag wrappers, often used for rolling joints. Paris admitted the Albuterol was hers. That cocaine in there, though?

Paris claimed the purse was not hers and that she had borrowed it from a friend. The cop questioned Paris about the cocaine and apparently, Paris gave an odd answer: "She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum."

Later, Paris changed her story with friends, saying it is her purse but had been in the possession of a friend. Paris claimed several cosmetic items in the purse were not hers, but she copped to $1,300 cash and some credit cards.

Paris says the cocaine was "probably her girlfriend's." Suuuure.

Hilton says one of her friends borrowed the purse and "probably" put cocaine inside. Paris says she got the bag back but never checked its contents.

Slightly different from the "It's-not-my-purse" defense used in previous arrests, but similar. "I had no idea the cocaine was there," she tells friends.

"I swear on my life."

Moreover, Paris, who's not sweating this at all, is even telling friends, "It could be a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am." She also believes the cops were "star-struck and blew the whole thing way out of proportion."

We'll see if her "friend" backs up this story. Bribes go a long way ...


I can't afford to stay at a Hilton Hotel! Holiday Inn!! Yea, all the way baby! Is Paris synonymist with Linsay Lohan??


I'm a fan of Paris's. But she needs to take a cue from her ole ex pal Nicole Ritchie and grow up!!


Leave her alone"!!! This drug war is absolutely rediculous!


She is praising her fans for sticking with her and supporting her. Fans??? Wantabies I think! They should send her up for the full 4 years and if she pulls a stunt like she did b4 send her to the prison hospital. How many others got sick but still had to do the time cause they did the crime! I'm just sick of hearing about Paris Hilton. I agree want has she done to get herself so celebritzed? New word!! Give her the full force of the law and this time make her do the time. She is just wasting the courts time and money!


Why is the world full of vacuous, high profile entities who contribute absolutely nothing,who thrive on attention, yet refuse to accept responsibility for their actions .........


oh ITS NOT MINE ! and HOW many are sitting in jail with that very same line ? How many have BEEN CONVICTED from using that very same line ? its hers and now she is scrambling to get out of more sh*t as usual and given her money she will ! its total bs cus if it were anyone one of us we would be tarred and feathered my mind she is not that pretty and if it was not for grampa's money she would be nothing !




Rich scum, has no values at all. A model for every girl in the country of what not to be like. If the media would quit putting her in the headlines, hopefully she would fade away quickly.


Who CARES????? This almost 30 something girl is just an idiot. She does nothing, contributes to nothing and her parents are proud!!! WOW... No wonder her grandfather "cut" her off. He should have totally withdrawn her funds, then she may see who would care??? To much, all the time and no brains = disaster, oh yeah we were talking about Paris Hilton!!
I absolutely refuse to stay at any Hilton Hotel so I don't contribute to her wealth in any way.


Ya know everyone has their problems and their moments...if she's changing her story apparantly she's lying but why be so stupid to ask for your purse knowing there is cocaine in there....she set herself up! BUT people do what they do...Paris is a trouble maker......also highly popular with the poparotzi (sp?)...I'm sure everyone writing here has made mistakes...why can't she? Maybe she'll learn from this one!

We want to stay together forever. I wouldn't do a Vegas [wedding]. I don't know where or when but I do want it to be romantic.

He's my best friend. He's just different from any guy that I've ever been with. I just trust him completely, and I know that he'd be there for me, no matter what.
