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.

And the "GOT BLOW?" t-shirts that her and her sister donned didn't belong to them either (in which the photo is in Paris's book)? What more evidence do you want??

When you have fame, money, and a name like hers you can get away with anything. These people make a fool of the law, but regular joe, gets throw in jail for **** like this. Knowing this trick she's loving the attention, anything to put the spotligh back on her because nobody cares anymore.

what a useless waste of space...the only shame here is that that guy wasn't able to break into her house and do us all a favor and stab her. he could've been a national hero.

Was her wallet/I.D. in said "wasn't mine" purse?

(Heard from a gas station outside of Vegas) "Stale gum? 24-pack of condoms? Valtrex xtra strength? Stolen pens from Kinkos? Turbo-Force Laxatives? Single Girl's Guide to Speaking Good? Oompa Loompa spray tanner? Wonky eye drops...WTF?? Do I have Paris Hilton's purse by mistake?"

Watch while they were checking her bag she says its not hers while they pull her wallet out with her id and everything, and she keeps saying its not hers. Next they pull out something else that says her name on it. haha. Just take responsibility for your actions Paris.

I wonder if her identification was in the purse or maybe credit cards. I know there are a lot of magicians in Las Vegas but it would be hard to transfer her belongs to a purse that wasn't hers. Just saying...
