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.

Gee, officer... everything in this purse is mine, except the rolling papers and coke. Why don't you believe me???????

How stupid does she think WE are???? This is the 3rd time in just a few short weeks that she stated the drugs found on HER are NOT hers. Methinks she does have a serious drug problem. Whether it's using cocaine to lose weight (or keep it off) and/or smoking pot all the time--she needs help. Honey, the judges are NOT going to believe a word you say, anymore.

By law they don't have a right to search her purse. But when she went to get her lip balm the officer saw the drugs. Other reports say that she dropped the drugs right in front of the officer.

She wasn't on her way to her shift as an ER surgeon. She wasn't even driving! If a young heiress can't party, who can? Leave her alone.

How's this for a cute little picture for you (wishing I know!) - Paris in zebra prison jump suit, attached to the chain gang and working her ass off lol!! Probably end up with the news helicopter over the chain gang filming though lol!!
Of course the other alternative is that the chain gang would end up kidnapping her and holding her ransom until the Hilton family paid up, then they'd insist on wire cutters and a private jet to fly them wherever they wanted to go!! Once they'd cut Paris free somewhere over South America they'd ditch her, she'd be able to get a new supply of drugs on the way back and feel no pain lol!!!
Chill baby chill lol!!
