Paris Hilton was arrested shortly before 12:30 a.m. this morning in Hollywood for investigation of driving under the influence. She was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and released to Nicky Hilton, her boyfriend, “Entourage” star Kevin Connolly, and her publicist, Elliot Mintz, who arrived at the Hollywood police station just before 2 AM. In a police statement, Officer Isabella said:
The officers observed that Hilton exhibited the symptoms of intoxication. A field sobriety test was conducted at scene, and the officers determined she was driving under the influence.”
Although her publicist confirmed the arrest, he claims that Paris had the minimum blood-alcohol level (.08) to warrant an arrest but counters with Paris had previously “worked” all day on a video shoot then attended a charity event where she had only one drink.
She’s absolutely fine…[The DUI was] probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued.”
Man, I just don’t know who to believe. Should I believe trained law enforcement or do I believe that Paris Hilton was just trying to unwind after a hard day at work? Unless that’s publicist for, “My client woke up with her panties around her ankle at 5p.m., blew a guy, lip-synched in front of a camera for ten minutes, blew two more guys, then spent the rest of the day getting drunk at yet another party,” then yeah, I guess I can see where he’s going with that.
Since these are funny, here again are those pictures of Paris Hilton and Brandon Davis being denied entry to a 2006 VMAs post-party at Bungalow 8:
