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.

Oh please. How many times do you walk out of a club with someone else's bag? There must have been ID in the bag right? She thinks she can get away with anything cuz of her money. Why was her bf arrested for a dui she should have been driving then? There are more holes in this story..

Nicky Hilton has been looking awful skinny lately, maybe Paris took her sisters purse to the club. Still, she shouldn't get off though because if it was anyone else that excuse would not fly.

How stupid can she be? How can she keep getting caught? I take it there was no id in the purse. The "Gee, i have someone else`s pants on", seems to have worked.

Paris: Tee he he, What seems to be the problem officer?
Cop: I`ve spotted you inhaling something suspicious.
Paris: I was just putting on some makeup.
Cop: What`s that white ring around your nose?
Paris: Tee he he, oops, i missed.
Cop: I`m going to have to look in your purse.
Paris: Oh my, i seemed to have taken the wrong purse. Sir it had cocaine in it. I was just trying to get rid of it.

What about her getting tested? It`s kind`ve hard to say the coke wasn`t mine when it`s running through you.

Puleeeezzzzeee! How stupid are we? How many women with cocaine in their purse leave it laying around for someone else to pick up? Apparently jail didnt scare her enough the first time, I never even heard about that womens shelter she promised she would build when she got out of jail. Not only priveledged, ugly and stupid too.

Rich people have different laws and rules than the rest of us. So let the games begin to make a joke of the legal system.

TO TMZ...Can you guys find out if it was her purse? How many people were in the limo? How many of those were women? Did she have to give her driver's license to show identity from said purse? Her excuses are getting old. The truth is, if you are hanging out with people who do drugs, you are most likely doing them as well. Like attracts like. Secondly, how many times is she going to use this excuse? This is the 3'd time in a matter of a few months. I hope they prosecute her this time.

couldn't the police just look inside the purse and notice it was her's???? I mean wouldn't there be ID , make up (lipstick thats the same shade she's wearing) or was there nothing in the purse that indicated anything??? Do these ppl not carry around ID??? Maybe not???

Im really sick and tired of Paris Hilton... she should do something positive with her life and her money but no she insists on being a mole on the back of America. PUKE!!! I really hope she does NOT have children!!!

This is nothing but a way to get media attention.....PH's 15 minutes were up long ago and she is just reverting back to what got her noticed in the first place......illegal, outrageous, unflattering behavior....she can't do another sex tape because that would be too obvious but she can keep getting arrested....worked for LL......probably her final ploy will be to be taken away in an ambulance and locked up in a psych ward!!!! Of course, there's always the "I'm bisexual" press release......
