Paris Hilton

Detained in Japan

Over Cocaine Case

9/21/2010 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Paris Hilton is a captive in a Japanese hotel tonight and can't enter the country ...  after being detained at the airport for hours over her guilty plea for cocaine possession.

A source close to Paris tells us she flew to Japan on business and was questioned by immigration authorities as she got off the plane.  Immigration authorities are allowing Paris to stay at an airport hotel until the matter is resolved.  For her part, Paris hasn't decided whether to stay or leave.

Paris' rep tells TMZ, "Paris Hilton was delayed by immigration authorities at a Japanese airport this evening after arriving for business obligations planned many months earlier.  Paris was contractually bound to her business trip and didn't want to let down her brands and many Asian fans."

An employee at the Consulate-General of Japan in NYC tells TMZ ... Japan is strict about letting people into the country with recent drug convictions but these matters are handled "on a case by case basis."

Paris' rep added ... she will fulfill her contract but right now things are beyond her control.

We're told there was a conflict within the ranks of those who questioned Paris -- some of whom felt it was for show.

They may think that people think they can go to their country and do hideous things. Now anyone from the US is more apt to get searched or detained. In Paris case she should be very careful, the laws in some of those places not Japan, but some of those overseas places, the laws are stoning and all that for certain things. She might want to keep her MESS in the USA where she is treated Special.

Hey Cocoapuff,

You just gave me an idea... maybe we could all pitch in a few bucks and send Paris and Lindsay on a trip to Saudi Arabia.

LMAO. Now she is starting to realize there are consequences for every action. What a dummy, ruining her "career" for a few puffs or a few toots. Is life so harsh for you Paris that you need to use drugs? Effing loser. I used to like PH but I hope she is denied entry to teach her a lesson. Sick of these spoiled brats.

What a lie. Marijuana possession is treated as a misdemeanor in Vegas. Its like getting a traffic ticket. The coke that "fell out of her purse" is complete BS. The cops threw that bag down jsut so they could get a high profile bust and make a statement.

Filthy pigs.

And all you jealous a-holes do is attack the victim of this police crime.

If you had brains, which you clearly dont, you'd be more worried about the abuse of power of these filthy Vegas pigs than you would be about whether a young rich girl wants to smoke a plant once in a while.

Filthy pigs and the people who love them.

You'd rather see two young girls go to prison because they are richer than you or better looking than you than face the REAL criminals here, the LVPD AKA The Las Vegas PIG Department.

And I am sure after the judge gave Paris her sentence in court yesterday he took off his kid gloves and started to sentence people to jail time for less than what Paris did. Seems like the poor always have to go to jail, even for unpaid parking tickets!!!

I was told by a US Consul whose sometimes jobs is to visit US citizens in jail, in the various countries they may be detained, depending on consulate's assignment, that Japan is one place no one would ever want to be detained. If they take her to jail, she will come out a different person. It is very bad.
