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.

I guess you can get away with anything when your daddy is rich. Why isn't she getting drug tested at these busts?

There are 2 sets of justice; one for the rich and famous and then there is the rest of us.

she's been a coke head for years. Everyone knows it especially in Vegas where she flaunts it in the VIP rooms.

She'll get off and laugh at the system again. The U.S. is a joke. To worship celebs like this is "loosah".

And People wonder why the rest of the world thinks we are tools.

Thom you are funny. The NV papers are already talking about probation or a misdemeanor. Get real.

Lindsay Lohan, Britney and Paris Hilton have done crimes that would send most of us to jail, and ruin our chance at any type of normal life. We could not get a job and many would avoid us.

These celebs think the courts are a joke. And they are. She'll get off, no problem.

Having someone driving who is will test out as high is amazingly stupid. But between the "it's not my purse" and a question of cause, my money is on her walking on this.

Give her hours and hours of community service picking up garbage on the side of the roads or some other type of not so nice hands on labour. This would probably be a better deterrent than just putting her in a jail cell by herself letting her read a book. Obviously that didn't work the last time.

Ok, girls the next time you want to
carry some coke with you on a date,
just borrow a purse. You're home free.

Didn't LiLo claim the pants she was
wearing when police found drugs in the pocket
weren't her pants?

Geez, if your in possession, you are in posession.
Doesn't mastter who owns the purse or the pants.

Oh wait that doesn;t apply to celebs.

man i wish she would get caught in Arizona with a little coke on her, sheriff joe would make sure she she was treated like everybody else. any joe shmo would be held until hearing and then released on bail, no matter the amount or the defense.
