Paris Hilton Arrested For Cocaine Possession In Las Vegas
August 29, 2010 – Paris was arrested on Friday night in Las Vegas with her boyfriend and Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits, who manages a club inside the Wynn Las Vegas. The couple were in a black SUV that a police officer stopped nearby at 11:22 p.m. Friday. The officer “followed the vapor trail and the odor of marijuana to the Escalade,” police Sgt. John Sheahan said. When the heiress asked to go inside the Wynn for privacy, she pulled a tube of lip balm from her purse and a plastic bag with cocaine dropped out in the process, prompting cops to arrest the 29-year-old for cocaine possession.
