Paris Cleared

in Marijuana Caper

7/2/2010 7:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton is off the hook for the whole pot thing in South Africa.

0702_paris_hilton_EX_TMZ_01A rep for Paris tells TMZ ... Paris was detained and questioned by police, after someone in her entourage allegedly was caught smoking marijuana at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, where the World Cup is being held.

We're told Paris has been released and cops even apologized for misidentifying her.

The rep claims the culprit has already pled guilty, paid a small fine and was released.

That's swift South African justice for you.

Transporting drugs out of the states into south africa isn't illegal if you're paris hilton. Oh right she didn't have any drugs in her bags even though no one checked.

No, I'll tell you what really happened! She paid them money under the table and they let her go. Africa is one of the most corrupt places on Earth. I know, I deal in international trade and almost every time something is shipped into Africa it's held up by Customs until you pay them a fee under the table. Ask anyone who ships to Africa if this isn't the truth!

Glad to hear this was resolved so quickly for her. Being arrested and detained for a crime you didn't commit in a foreign country is a very scary experience.

That being said if the same thing had happened to me I'm sure I wouldn't have been released nearly so quickly!

Why are you Americans so cruel to her? I am South African and most people I know are indifferent to her or even like her.

I mean what is there to hate about her? She's attractive, successful and she dresses and travels in style.

Are people jealous because she's rich or maybe that she's heiress to big riches? What's the deal?

Why don't they just leave her alone? It's must be so difficult to be both famous and beautiful.....

And they who are nasty with her, are just jealous!!!

Don't let anyone mess with you!

Paris welcome in South Africa!
