Paris Hilton

Charged with

8/30/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton will be charged with possession of a controlled substance -- .8 grams of cocaine -- this according to documents obtained by TMZ ... and it's a felony.

We're told the D.A. filed the case today.  You can read the criminal complaint and the police report in this post.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, the cop who stopped the Escalade pulled along the passenger side of the vehicle and smelled "the strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle."

The cop writes he noticed immediately the passenger was Paris.  He then observed her trying to roll up the window.

After the traffic stop and a crowd of 100 people gathered around, Hilton said she was "extremely embarrassed" and asked the cop if she could go to the bathroom at the Wynn Hotel.

At the hotel, Paris told the cop she needed lip balm so the cop handed Paris her purse: "As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand."

The cop also says ... inside the purse was a "broken tablet of Albuterol" -- a prescription medication used to control wheezing.  And cops say they found Zig Zag wrappers ... commonly used to roll joints.

Paris then admitted the Albuterol was hers but she said the cocaine was not and claimed the purse was not hers -- that she had borrowed it from a friend.  The cop questioned Paris about the cocaine and according to cops Paris gave an odd answer: "She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum."

Note:  Paris has changed her story with friends, saying the purse was hers but had been in the possession of a friend.  Paris claimed to cops several cosmetic items in the purse were not hers, but she copped to $1,300 cash and some credit cards.

Cops say they found .8 grams of coke in the purse.

@ 139 Mr Baxter

It is extremely rare for anyone convicted of less than a gram of coke to do any time at all. That goes for rich people and everyone else. The jails are full of violent criminals and real drug dealers and that is the way it should be, jailing non-violent criminals and recreational users is stupid and a waste of money.

It would be hypocritical of me to say I want her to go to prison as I am for the legalization and regulation of all drugs. Since she wasn't driving, I have no beef with her. She wants to snort coke, let her. Can't make her any smarter, that's for sure.

No wonder she keeps having to go on reality shows to find friends. Her "real" ones are tired of her trying to frame them.

So if she was just a passenger isn't it unlawful to search her personal belongings if she was not the driver and did nothing wrong? Just wondering.

Imagine how it must feel to be so rich that you can buy your way out of anything?

And imagine being so dumb that you're actively trying to prove that point every day of your life?

They will give her a drug program and probation....

But when she violates probation and doesnt go to drug school... she will be back in court and on TMZ.

Is she still on probation in california?

Give me a break..she's a spoiled rich girl and thinks she is better than everyone, she was going to build a place when she left jail to help other women in jail get on their feet and keep them from being abused. That was how long ago?? Instead she went back to that stupid show holding her wand and looking for a new BFF. She doesn't impress me at all and I'll bet she ends up totally alone in her old age because she is so selfish! This is one girl I have no sympathy for!!!

Las Vegas successfully prosecuted OJ. I don't think she will get out of this one without doing some time.

The average Joe would not have been walked to the bathroom, and would have been arrested right on the street.

The cops would have told the average Joe to hold it, or pee your pants.

These people who can afford chauffeurs crack me up! They are too stupid!!

Smell of pot came from inside the car, but there's no mention of any maryjane in the car except the rolling papers. There's no mention of a drug test either.

It looks like the skank will not do a minute in jail due to the unlawful stop. BUMMER
