Paris Hilton arrested over cocaine in Las Vegas
Saturday 28 August 2010
Socialite Paris Hilton has been arrested for possession of cocaine after officers stopped the car she was in on a Las Vegas street, police said.
Public information officer Marcus Martin said Hilton was booked into the Clark County Detention Centre on a charge of possession of cocaine.
He said she was in a car driven by a friend that was stopped on Friday night when officers noticed what they suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from it.
Martin said that officers found what appeared to be a controlled substance on Hilton and tests showed that it was cocaine.
He said he didn't know how much of the drug was found.
Las Vegas police said that Hilton was still being held and would probably be released later.
