Paris Hilton was arrested by Las Vegas police late on Friday night for alleged possession of cocaine. According to reports by FOX News, police stopped a black Escalade Paris was riding in at 11:30pm on suspicion of smelling marijuana coming from it.
“Officers noticed a vehicle leaving smoke trail of a controlled substance (and) made a stop based on that,” Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin told the Associated Press.
When police stopped the car, and arrested the driver for DUI. When they searched Paris, they found a white substance, which later tested positive for cocaine.
After talking to the driver of the vehicle, who has not been named, and Paris, it was determined Paris was in possession of the illegal substance. She was arrested and taken to Clark County prison, but was released several hours later.
Paris was detained just a few months ago during the World Cup in South Africa on suspicion of marijuana possession, but was released after a midnight court hearing.
In 2007 Paris pleaded no contest to charges reckless driving and DUI, and spent 23 days in Lynwood prison.
Lindsay Lohan recently spent time in the same prison.
A number of celebrities may need cocaine abuse rehabilitation, but only a few have come out, or have been caught using or possessing the drug.
