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.

She will get this knocked down to a misdemeanor and she will pay a fine and move on. I sure hope she gets the felony but she wont.

Why do people still think that the police can't pull you over for no reason? They can pull you over for anything they want.

If the cop believed a crime was being committed, he had the right to pull them over. Smelling the pot gives them the right to search for the drug, I do believe. What are the odds running in Vegas for Paris getting little or no time? 75 to 1?

I don't think Paris learned anything from her jailtime.She has not changed one bit.Paris continues to make poor choices;that her choices involve illegal drugs makes it all the worse for her.

The cop held her purse while she went to the bathroom? WTF?? When would this happen to an Average Joe?? Here's another star-struck suck-up cop, then she'll see a star-struck suck-up judge and go to jail for 10 minutes and walk away laughing and giving million-dollar interviews about how she suffered and couldn't get a manicure in her cell.

Friend?    

How many times can a person get caught with drugs in the U.S. without doing any time? And cocaine is some heavy stuff too so how many times is it ok without going to jail, I thought the drug laws were strikt?

Just another druggie celeb who's going to get off by paying big bucks to the right people.

If this was a couple of black guys in a black Escalade, they both be still sittin' in jail, awaiting their court date.

Rich white girl will get off easy.

All this after someone tried to break into her home to kill her.

Wondering what the third will be.. All things come in THREEs.

.8 of a gram? She was either shorted, or did a quick bump in the Escalade.

Yeah, the cop having the purse and THEN handing it to her and finding coke is a big RED FLAG. Tampering with evidence???
