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.

The laws are abiding for poor and not for celebrities? How can one roam around in this way?
The justice lies in equal treatment, and secondary citizenship is hurting all the way.

The outcome to this should be interesting. If she does "get off" this time, she should consider starting a productive life and leave the bar scene. She is more than likely clubs, drugs, booze and rock and roll!!!

What's wrong with you crazy people saying this stuipd woman is being singled out? Driving imparied is NO joke, and neither is possession of any drug. Yes this includes alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, all which she uses. She's a drug addict!!! aka poly-substance dependent.

Get real. Thousands of people are killed each year by impaired drivers. A white and rich suspect gets you crazy people thinking otherwise.

She is above the law. She has been above the law since birth and will continue to be above the law for every crime she commits for the rest of her life. People with money and fame live by different laws. She will get a show on E though.

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.

If Paris Hilton did have cocaine in her purse, if she is found guilty of cocaine possession, then she should go to prison like any other person convicted of a drug offense. No more "off to rehab" and 39 hours in jail for criminal conduct. This woman obviously doesn't think laws apply to her and she needs to learn that they do. Paris Hilton puts herself out there as a role model for young girls. She must be brought down because illegal drug use is a crime and does serious damage to our nation and others. Illegal drugs are a scourge on humanity.
