Paris Standoff -- Sheriff vs. Judge

6/8/2007 2:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the reason Paris Hilton stayed at home while the lawyers and judge sat in court is because the Sheriff's Department refused to pick her up.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Sheriff's position is that the judge does not have the power to order her to court. The Sheriffs believe they have sole jurisdiction to monitor and control Hilton while she is under house arrest.

The Sheriff's Department says they are the only ones authorized to take her anywhere. Thus, the standoff in court.

The issue may have been resolved, but that is why the hearing was delayed this morning.

You can bet you butt that the Sherrif has a new overseas bank account somewhere and he will decide to resign soon, and probably won't be seen for a long time.
With the Hilton's money, You can bet that Daddy paid someone off for this. Anyone else would be in jail and treated like a dog.
PUT THE SLUT IN JAIL AND LEAVE HER THERE! I hope that she will NOW be required to fulfill her sentance!

This is crap. No one could over-ride a Judge when it was Terri Schivo, the handicapped woman whose husband wanted her starved to death and it took 2 weeks for her to die. Even the President couldn't over-rule the Judge, so how can a lousy Sheriff over-rule the Judge and his decision???? This doen't make a lick of sense! put the whore back in jail. She must have blown the whole department with that "hot" mouth. That and the big financial pay-off.

Okay... The Sheriff's Dept was paid off, and to keep the money, they've got to do whatever is necessary to keep Paris out of jail.

I cannot wait for this to be an episode of Law & Order. IT'S GON BE TIGHT!!!

THIS IS ALL JUST A WAIST OF TIME. PEOPLE ARE TO DRAMATIC NOW-A-DAYS. LET THE FEMALE STAY ON HOUSE ARREST!! SO NOW THE JUDGE DECIDES TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE!!! KINDA LATE JUST WHAT ABOUT THE HUNDREDS OF SEXUAL OFFENDERS THAT GET RELEASED AND ASSULT THE FIRST PERSON THEY SEE. I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF THAT DAMN JUDGE. HE'S OVERREACTING SO WHAT IF SHE GOT OFF EARLY MOST PEOPLE DO THE ONLY REASON WE NOTICED THIS WAS CAUSE SHE IS PARIS HILTON AND SHE HAD MONEY IM SURE WHEN JOSE FROM INGLEWOOD GETS RELEASED EARLY FOR A DUI NO ONE IS EVEN GONNA LOOK IN HIS DIRECTION OR AT THE FACT THAT HE IS GOING TO DRINK AND DRIVE ON THE WEEKEND AGAIN

What's wrong with her face in this picture?    

If this Sheriff is not fired ........ how can we trust that he won't just pull this again tomorrow (or over night when the Judge is sleeping)?

Is there another jail where the Judge can order her to go? (Not a better one, but one where this ridiculous Sherrif doesn't work.)

I know that this Hilton story is big news, but what about the starving children? When will put as much attention to that domestic issue as this entertainment? Don't forget this is all for ENTERTAINMENT purposes.

This Sherrif is an elected official. For those of you in California, don't re-elect him (unless you have lots of money and plan on being sent to jail of coure)
What a joke!

God Lord! This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. First of all, if it were you or I we would be under the jail and not in a "private" cell. Also, if you or I didn't eat the prison food, cried, put on the poor little girl act, we would be laughed and and told to get our crap together. Go get the stupid girl who is only famous for excessive partying and her infamous sex video, enforce the laws, and move on to something more important.

Let's not forget, if she wouldn't have been drinking and driving none of this would have happened. It has gotten totally out of control and this crap needs to end. Besides, isn't it almost time for Nicole Richie's day in the jail spotlight??

What an embarrassment to our country and judicial system this fighting is, as is letting a spoiled girl out of prison because she is refuses to eat jail food when many poor families would do about anything for it!

Baca does not have any respect for the law or the judge himself! Baca and Paris should be sharing the same cell in the old County Jail in downtown. Us people need to take Baca down in the next election.
