Paris Hilton was videotaped leaving Hyde nightclub in Hollywood with her publicist Elliot Mintz last night. Mintz took the wheel and drove the heiress home a day following her DUI arrest. When Paris got out of the car outside her home, a gaggle of paparazzi asked, why the wig? She responded “Just for fun.” One photog wanted to know how Paris was treated in the pokey. Mintz replied, “…just wonderfully.” Mintz wouldn’t respond to whether the ‘Simple Life’ star has had her driver’s license suspended.
Footage from TMZ.com has since been removed.
DUI Arrest ‘Humiliating And Disorienting’ For Paris Hilton
September 8, 2006 – Paris’ spokesman Elliott Mintz spoke with The New York Daily News following the star’s arrest early Thursday morning. “She had not eaten all day. She was a little weak. She left the event intending to go to In-N-Out Burger,” Mintz said. “She is a big fan of fast food. She regrets what happened. She did not take this matter lightly or frivolously. She had never been arrested before, and it was clearly humiliating and disorienting.”
Paris Hilton Was Smart After DUI Arrest
September 8, 2006 – Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Thursday night, “Oh, what a crowd! Yeah. Thank you very much. You sound like Nicole Richie when she heard about Paris Hilton. What a crowd. … That’s the big story in Hollywood. Paris Hilton arrested last night for suspicion of driving under the influence. Yeah, yeah. Drunk driving, though, she was smart. As soon as the cop pulled her out of the car, she said, ‘Go, Israel! Whoo, those Jews are great! Yeah!’ … In fact, when the cops arrested her, they put her in handcuffs, and this time they weren’t the pink fuzzy ones. No, no. … Now, when she was arrested, the police put her in a holding room, and she was allowed to make one call. And you can see she’s led a a spoiled life. Like, she tried to call room service. … See, that’s really — in fact, I think this is the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to Paris Hilton. Well, since her CD came out.”

Perez’s Details Of Paris’ Arrest
September 7, 2006 – Perez Hilton was with Paris Hilton moments before her arrest last night at the Dragonfly in Hollywood. Perez writes, “Paris was not wasted. She had one drink – a margarita, mixed at the table – minutes before getting into her Mercedes on her way to In ‘N Out Burger to get something to eat. She had spent the last two days shooting a music video in Long Beach. Within a block of the charity concert at the Dragonfly is the Hollywood police station and the cops pulled Paris’ car over less than ten minutes after this picture was taken. They administered a field sobriety test, which she passed. And then she took a breathalyzer. She blew a .08. In California, driving with a .08 blood alcohol level is the minimum level for DUI. Paris was cooperative and did not resist arrest or go on any tirade.” Perez added that Paris was released within 15 minutes.
