Paris Hilton -- 'It Wasn't My Purse'

8/28/2010 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton wouldn't be caught dead with the purse that contained cocaine -- and that will be her defense in her Las Vegas cocaine arrest ... TMZ has learned. 

Paris Hilton Cocaine in Purse
Sources who have spoken with Paris since her arrest on the Vegas strip late last night tell TMZ ... she insists the purse -- with what we're told contained a small amount of cocaine -- was not hers.

As we first reported, she's hired powerful Vegas lawyer David Chesnoff to handle the case ... and he already got her sprung without posting bail.

You'll recall Paris used the "the-drugs-weren't-mine" defense in South Africa last month, after being detained by police. No charges were filed against her.

As for the Vegas case, as far as we know she was the only woman in the car that was stopped, but she had been partying at a club prior to the bust where other women and purses were present.

these celebrities are making a complete joke out of the US legal system. People from all over the world see this sh*t and it reflects on the entire country.

If it was an average Joe, it'd be a completely different story.

I am so tired of rich girls that think they are above the law. She's not even a useful being. I thought after her jail thing she was going to devote her time to helping others. Please, someone lock her up and keep her away from everyone else.

She is not attractive she's got a long schnoz and big feet. She does have pretty eyes.

It's not my purse, as she quickly throws it on the drivers lap. She'll probably pay one of her friends to clam the purse.

Enough with her already. She's almost 30 years old and has accomplished nothing. She comes from a priviledged background and could have done something with her life (i.e. Anderson Cooper). She couldn't even graduate from High School.

Throw her a-- in jail and keep her there for a year.

IN MY OPINION    

It's amazing how the rich get away with things the poor can't. She hasn't twittered about her arrest, but she has twittered since the arrest.

Is is typical for someone to walk out on COCAINE charges? It must have been a good amount for the cops to charge.

I can already see the charges been dismissed!
