Paris Hilton Suspect -- Turn Your Head and Cuff

10/13/2010 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The L.A. City Attorney has officially charged the suspect with trespassing and battery ... both misdemeanors. If convicted on both counts, dude faces up to a year behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines.

TMZ has obtained a photo of the man cops arrested at Paris Hilton's L.A. home yesterday -- moments after he allegedly snuck past a guard gate and tried to knock on her door.

As TMZ first reported, the suspect -- James Rainford -- allegedly got into a physical altercation with private security after he rode his bike to Paris' front door and began to ring her doorbell. LAPD soon arrived on scene and arrested the suspect for battery.

We're told Rainford told police that he "knew" Paris ... though sources close to Hilton tell us she has never met this guy in her life.

Rainford was held on $20,000 bail.

Are you kidding me? Everything in Hollywood is so fake even the cops, look at the cops they look like actors, and the dude arrested is her drug runner. Who are they trying to fool?

Wait, what??? She gets busted for cocaine, and is released and receives a slap on the hand. This guy gets busted for knocking on her door and gets $20,000 bail? Yeah, justice.

It's a shame he wasn't putting "gum" up his nose during the process... They might have been charged him for something that would carry some real jail time. Boo Ho.
Seriously though; if this isn't dismissed or dropped to simple trespassing and let the guy (regardless of his mental facilities or lack there of) off with time served, it's definitive proof that law enforcement and our judicial system is disproportionately balanced leaning towards the 'rights' of those of wealth.
This really constitutes as news??
I wonder what would happen if someone were to knock on say... I don't know; Kevin Cosner's door? Was he a Jehova's Witness or selling girl scout cookies?

Me, I would have just waved from the sidewalk. But really, I just want to pull her hair, and kiss her, and bang her into the pillow. She is so hot. If only she knew me...
