Paris Hilton

Charged with

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.

Barron Hilton, Paris's billionaire grandfather, owns a HUGE ranch in Nevada. Steve Fossett took off from that ranch when he was killed, flying into a mountain. If Paris gets off, you can guess why, and who paid off who.

Seems like all the young ones in Hollyweird are drug users. Treat them just like anyone else who gets caught with posession of a controlled substance. They are no better than anyone else they just have enough money to buy their way out. Lohan should still be in rehab or jail. It is all just a matter of time for all of them.

Really why does anyone care about these young people in hollywood they have absolutely no morals or respect for anything including themselves. Paris isn't famous for anything important or relevant...except her name. And, I don't think just because you're 'so called' famous that you should get off when you break the law. All of us regular citizens would get the book thrown at us so Paris, you better duck because I hope they throw the book at you and then....PLEASE just go away!!!!!

Well, at least Paris has never had her breast enhanced ...on her fantastic body )( & she does enjoy partying & she also made a great porno......but, a shame that she can't tell the truth when busted for cocaine,.......so, not cool Paris........a failing grade for you.....oh well, no harm done, pay the fine & do the time, ...our fine men & women are dying in the war while you're out doing cocaine
& partying & lying....&& After you get out of prison, go over to Iraq & Afghanistan & entertain the troops twice a year....do something good the country & world......for once in your life....& Nicky has a lot more class....

If the cops were smart, they did a urine and blood test on her as well. I believe they can run one of these if a person is caught holding drugs. In certain countries, she would be put to death. Seriously. Additionally, holding a hard drug like cocaine is not a victimless crime. Just ask all of the innocent people dying in Mexico from drug lords who are terrorizing the country. Additionally, drug trade supports terrorists and deadly assult weapons. Paris is a waste of space. She needs to straighten up and wise up.

I hope EVERYONE reads the complaint against Paris that is in a PDF file at the top of this thread. The latest LOSER Paris is dating FAILED a sobriety test. WHAT IF HE HAD KILLED SOMEONE WHILE DRIVING STONED (remember, the cop smelled pot even outside the car).

Cop finds coke in her purse - why didn't he have a drug test done?

"Yes, officer, it's my money, credit cards, lip balm and, oh yes, the purse is also mine but the drugs aren't" - yeah, right.

This girl is a pathological liar. Remember when she told the press she only slept with 2 people her whole life and did not do drugs? Lock her and her loser boyfriend up before they kill someone driving wasted.
