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.

She'll probably have a good lawyer to get out of going to prison. Even if she gets a felony, I don't think it would matter. She is rich. It's not like she will have to find work.

After reading the arrest report, why did LVPD allow Paris to go to the bathroom? She could have (and probably did) flush down the coke and MJ and whatever else she had. How stupid on LVPD's part.

its obvious she knew the coke was in the purse ,she's moving suspiously as the cops approach the vehicle,like she's trying to hide something,then she wants to go to a restroom,duh,to dump the coke,since the police officer is holding her purse she comes up with the lip balm excuse and tries to grab the coke at the same time,to flush down toilet,but misses the oppurtuniy,girl was thinking on her feet,did they find they pot? she hid it in the vehicle,as cops approached,didnt have quite enough time for the coke.

Sounds like she was trying to flush the coke, and her plan of being able to take the purse into the bathroom with her was foiled. And its not being famous, or being un-famous...if you break the law you have to pay the consequences!! The same laws that apply to all of us apply to her too.

How much is 0.8 grams? - 4/5 of a gram. It is not like a major Paris Hilton drug bust. However, cocaine possession is still a crime... and Las Vegas seems to take breaking the law a bit more serious than Los Angeles ... ala Oj Simpson.

On episode after episode of "Cops," when drugs are found, the perp always has an excuse. "It's not my pants," "It's not my car," "It's not my purse," etc. Do these people attend a special school for this? If so, I guess Paris graduated *** laude!
