According to papers obtained by TMZ, Paris Hilton has been charged with possession of .8 grams of cocaine… a felony.
The officer who stopped the escalade Paris was a passenger in tells the tale of the night, claiming that after an officer escorted Paris to the Wynn hotel so she could use the bathroom, she requested some lip balm, when the cop handed her the purse, that’s when the drugs were discovered.
“As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand.”
Also in the purse was a “broken tablet of Albuterol,” which is a drug prescribed to control wheezing.
Paris owned up to the tablet, but denied the cocaine was hers.
Her original story to the officer was that the purse was not hers, and that she had borrowed it from a friend. When cops questioned her about the baggie, Paris explained: “She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum.”
She later changed her story when explaining to her friends, claiming the purse was hers, but that a friend had been borrowing it prior to that evening.
We think she’s in deep trouble here, conflicting stories, and the fact that the baggie was able to fall from the purse, rather than beeing buried deep and only found during a through search would almost guarantee that the bag had been out already that night, possibly at one point containing much more than .8 grams.
If convicted, she could face up to four years in prison!
