Paris Hilton

Charged with

Drug Felony

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.

Don't the damn Cops have anything better to do than harass
this beautiful young lady. She pays lots of taxes and we
should give her a break. Lets get this straight, every time I visit Vegas you cannot walk five feet down the strip (either way) without being giving cards advertsing prostitution. The cops turn a blind eye - and these girls give people aids and all kinds of infections. Paris is minding her own business and
some silly stupid cop stops her and arrests her. As they
say in England "What a shower!" Bill AZ

I'm not a HUGE Paris fan, but I don't hate her either. I think the Governor needs to step in because Paris is doing a better job helping the economy than him.........just sayin, lol! Another thing, I'd take the blame for it as her "friend"....for a quick mill

It wasn't even a grams worth. you can't put someone under the same roof as major drug dealers and murderers for a gram of coke, thats ridiculous and laughable.

0.8 grams in fact
dunno but it doesn't look like a lot of drug and for sure she's not a dealer so why everybody is so ready to send her to jail?

beside that the whole story smells of stupidity, so she's guilty of stupidity (that's for sure)

She should go to prison. If the same thing happened to you or me, we'd be locked up. The whole "That isn't mine" bit stops working when one graduates high school. But - as we all know - being famous and a white woman, she probably won't get in much trouble.

Well, its a good thing people are concerned about personal drug possession more than, say, beating or menacing their wives or girlfriends. Must keep our priorities straight. Good thing drug arrests trump assault. Whew. I feel so much safer now.
