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.

Yeah, Paris. The pot was in someone else's purse. Yeah this coke was not yours. This alcoholic, pot/coke/fame whore needs to go to jail again. If you are innocent how about you take a drug test? That will prove you innocence.

Since these IDIOTS are too DUMB and CHEAP as a mofo to hire drivers - F&@$ them. The deserve what they get. I can't have compassion for someone drinking, drugging and driving when they can get someone else to do the driving (AT LEAST) for them. They deserve to get caught - these police may be saving an innocent person's life - by getting their drunk, drugged up behinds OFF THE STREETS.

So, little princess caught in a web! Although I'm sure Mommy and Daddy will bail her out of this one, I would love to see a judge wipe that smirk off her face. If it was you or I with a gram of cocaine, we wouldn't get slapped on the wrist. Justice is supposed to be blind.

The crazy thing is it sounds like the cop recognized her and was about to give her the star treatment, no search just a firm talking to, and let go about her business. But she opened her purse and the coke fell out in front of a crowd of people and left him with no choice but to arrest her.

Like Lindsay 'was', Paris is completely out of control when it comes to drugs.

The police never should have let her out on bail the night of her arrest. Besides, she could have started her 1 - 4 year jail time!

Clearly 'guilty' (yeah, yeah, allegedly), but should that really be a crime? By using that crap, she's only hurting herself.

Guess we will know after a DRUG test if the coke was hers or not............ and any pics of her earlier in evening carrying the purse would prove nicely :)

Enough is enough. This classless young lady who has abused her status as a "debutante" for years. She's gotten away with crimes in the past because of who she is, and mommy and daddy's money paying for attorneys. This time, she needs to go to jail.

I don't know of anybody who buys drugs on their Visa. Why would you need 1,300.00 in cash when you have credit cards? I hope she gets nailed.
