Paris Hilton Arrested for Cocaine Possession

Paris Hilton was picked up by police in Las Vegas late Friday after a small amount of cocaine was found in her possession in yet another brush with the law for the hotel heiress.

Police said Hilton and her boyfriend, Cy Waits, were brought to the Clark County jail after the arrest, but the socialite was released early Saturday. However, Waits remains in jail as he is set to appear in court to face a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Vegas police approached the couple after officers noticed what turned out to be marijuana smoke inside a black Cadillac Escalade. Hilton was later found in possession of a small amount of cocaine. The couple were arrested near the Wynn Las Vegas on Las Vegas Boulevard.

It was the second time in less than two months that Hilton has been arrested on drug possession charges. Hilton was arrested early last month in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, just after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match when she and a friend were suspected of using marijuana. The charge against Hilton was eventually dropped.
