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.

The DA would do well to save the Nevada taxpayers money and send Miss Hilton to the good folks at bunbeatingfun.com instead.

There's nothing wrong with Paris that a good pants down spanking wouldn't cure :-)

It is so sad to see all of the poor in this country flooding the prisons due to felony conviction of drugs yet all of the wealthy who get busted end up in a posh rehab in Malibu if that.

To the person that states: Yeah, EVERYONE wants Paris in the slammer for NOTHING! I hate when they try to make an example out of a celeb., while real criminals roam free. Stupid laws!

YOU must be stupid!! How many times do these spoiled rich brats have to get charged with DUI, drug possesion, shoplifting, killing some innocent person, etc...before someone truly does make an example of them? These brats need to learn they are not above the law. This crap needs to stop and it's not going to unless they learn that their money cannot keep them out of jail!!!

Cocaine, Really? Is what my gal would think! Did you know that Lithium is being sold as a lightweight buffer for cocaine! Many girls in Las Vegas smoke crack with the tube from a red, white and blue pop sicle and add white mint flavor lifesavers to the snow filled portion!
Paris Hilton is a "dream"! Reality, there must be divinity for her and her unfortunate senarios! Paris, I love you and wish the best for you!

This girl has no education, dropped out in the 8th grade. Spoiled. SELF Centered, Useless and a SLUT and DRUG Addict. Puhleeze. He Mother has failed. ANd, all of that fake, "I'm runnin' a Bizz-Ness Crap" is not believed by anyone. You CAN be rich , and have CLASS. But, apparently Cathy Hilton has no idea how to raise a girl. Maybe, Dr. Drew can fix her. Or Dr. Phil. She is absolutely DISGUSTING and SICKENING. Calling Cathy Hilton !!! Get to work, Mother !

I know in California if you get popped 3 times for felony charges you go to jail forever. I'm curious if Nevada has the same "3 strikes & you are out", I would love to see Paris locked up for a very long time, she is a spoiled brat living off of her grandads and her dads money. Can anybody tell me why she is a celebrity? She looks like a freekin' standard poodle. My apologies to standard poodles. Just lock up this freak of nature. It must be nice to party 24/7.
