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.

Legalize drugs now and stop this nonsense! Who cares if people do cocaine, marijuana, etc.?
Sounds like the cops were out to get her. She wasn't even driving the car

What's that saying, you sleep with dogs, you get flees. Maybe she needs to change her circle of friends.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's called lying. And changing your story. Two things typically done to cover up the truth. Buh-bye!

Idiot!    

HA HA!!!! I hope uber-whore paris is found guilty and has her ass tossed into prison for years.

Her "it wasn't mine, it was my girlfriend's" excuse doesn't fly, because the charge against her is POSSESSION of coke, not ownership. She's going to trot out every lame ass, weak excuse under the sun, but Nevada doesn't mess around; this ain't star struck California. They put OJ in jail for 25 years, they can toss this whore in the slam as well. AND, there's no "we're releasing you in 24 minutes, due to overcrowding" deals in Nevada; you do the crime, you do the WHOLE time...

So that is why she took her purse when she left the Escalade but then went to retrieve her lip gloss and was busted.

$10 says she gets off scot free! If it was anyone else they'd serve jail time but it'll never happen for more than a few days for princess Paris. sd but true. Money talks and the rich walk.

I can't believe this tramp thinks people will believe that she "borrowed" that purse from someone else...with all of their stuff still in it. What a line!!!! (and I'm not talking about coke either). No woman will loan another woman a purse...with her stuff still in it! Regardless...lets assume all of us have gone brain dead momentarily and buy her story, the law says she was in possession of cocaine...she WAS in possession of cocaine, it was in the purse she "borrowed"...therefore the purse was in her possession and so were all the contents of it. What a dingbat!!! Welcome back to prison Paris!

I'm not Paris Hilton fan, but the cop expects us to believe that the coke just happened to fall out of the purse into his hand while she was opening the purse? Come on, that's just stupid. He's the one that should go on trial.
