Cops MAY Not Have Followed Proper Procedure In Paris Arrest

| Filed under: Paris HiltonLegal MattersBusted!

Looks like the cops MAY have given Paris a fighting chance for not following proper procedure.

When Paris and her boyfriend Cy Waits were pulled over in Vegas, a source says that Paris wasn't searched on the scene, which goes against procedure. Here's what the source had to say about it:

"Cops discovered the cocaine inside the security offices where Paris was taken. Because Paris was taken away from the scene where the car was pulled over, this could potentially be an illegal search of a person.

More from the source:

"Las Vegas Metro didn't follow standard procedures when Paris was arrested and her lawyer will be talking to the D.A. about this."

And more from the source:

"Paris says she changed the purse she was carrying at the last minute last night because the one she had didn't coordinate with the rest of her outfit the way she wanted. She says she borrowed a friend's purse because it matched better."

Paris's Vegas attorney David Chesnoff will be taking the case to the DA, under the argument that the amount of cocaine was negligible, that the purse wasn't hers, and that she was illegally searched.

Do U think Paris has got a case here?

    she's gonna use whatever she can to get out of it- the bitch just needs to fess up and say shes a druggie, first the weed possession, and now the coke- some things never change….



  2. 2

    This rancid cun*t needs to rot in jail. She is a complete waste of space. 30 years old and STILL going to clubs and doing drugs. Total loser.



  3. 3

    you don't just let your friend borrow your purse and forget your coke. BS!



  4. 4

    Well if it was her 'friends' purse, wouldn't they have to know who her friend is?



  5. 5

    Screw the procedure. The procedure is just Las Vegas metro's way they do business. Procedures are different among every police department in the country. It doesn't change the fact that the coke was found in her purse. As long as the cops had cause to stop the vehicle and cause to search, ole P is screwed. Too bad she changed her story so many times. Looks like she shot herself in her size 11 foot.

    Remember….3 Strikes Your Out Law??? This is STRIKE 2!!! Next one is LIFE in the pink kitty box!!!

    As much as we would hate to see her get off so easily. If it was an illegal search, then yes the case can get thrown out. Many cases throughout the legal system have been thrown out because of an illegal search. Even though the suspect was caught red handed. The protocol the officers used in these cases were not by the book. So it didn't matter, even though the person was guilty and all the proof in the world was there. However, most times they will get busted again later in time, and end up in the big house.



  8. 8

    Will someone PLEASE give this bitch a drug test so we can get on with our lives???



  9. 9

    She has ben busted 6 times in the last few months and everytime she gets off do to a technicality? Yeah that doesnt seen fishy at all. Guess its good to have her kind of money so she can just keep buying her way out of htese little messes.

    Isn't "possession" 9/10th of the law? Shouldn't that count for anything here? And who is the friend? I am certain that she's thrilled that Paris would passing the coke blame onto her. How come we seem to know for certain that it isn't just Cy Waits' coke (if Paris doesn't do coke herself)? Or how come the owner of the purse isn't just openly identified and busted?

    As I ask myself every night since this happened (tossing and turning as I have night sweats just thinking about it), HOW can you put your lip balm and wheezing meds into a small handbag but never notice the cocaine inside?

    And how can a bag'o'cocaine fall out of the handbag unless that handbag is relatively quite small? Yet not so small as for Paris to miss the coke when she's sticking her meds and chapstick into it? Is Paris such a drug mule that she doesn't even know what it is she's toting around anymore?

    She might be one of the luckiest bitches on the planet. It may not have been her coke and her whole story might be true…but come on who hasn't borrowed a purse from one of their coked up friends and ended up with a consolation prize. Her's just almost got her in trouble. Poor Paris she needs a break…she has been nothing but bad press lately.



  12. 12

    I hope she doesn't get out of this. Once again, who she is comes into play. She would have been searched at the scene and arrested like any other normal person had she not been Paris Hilton and granted some sort of decency from open public display. Fuck her.



  13. 13

    Give me a break. She is so rich, she probably has a million purses - I find it hard to believe that she couldn't find one to "match her outfit". Besides, it doesn't matter if it was her purse or not, she was carrying cocaine, so she is responsible for it. If everyone was let go for things like this because of excuses like, "I didn't know! or It wasn't mine!" then no one would ever get in trouble.



  14. 14

    Paris needs to think about her good friend Casey Johnson (RIP) and stop this nonsense……



  15. 15

    You know what's laughable about the old "its not my drugs" excuse? Whether its lying about the purse its in, the jeans its in, or whatever item you "borrowed" from your "friend"… everyone knows when it comes to drugs, (especially expensive drugs like cocaine)- people treat their drugs like gold. They dont leave them in jeans pockets and then lend the jeans out (cough cough, Lindsay Lohan). they dont "forget" they left a baggie of coke in their other purse. No, when it comes to people and their drugs, they know where it is at all times, how much they have left, and they keep it as close to them as a mother does her infant. This is coming from a former pain killer addict (i did rehab in '07, have been sober ever since.) Anyone who has or ever has currently had a drug addiction knows this. And THAT is why these celebrity whores are so rediculous with their BS excuses. I will be really pissed if her money buys her out of this one. Go to rehab, coke whore.



  16. 16

    It doesn't make sense that she would open her purse in front of the officer, knowing that she had cocaine in there. Also, they said the sent of Marijuana was wafting strongly from the car. Her story may be true about the coke, but her escaped Marijuana bust may have been justified.



  17. 17

    It wasn't her cocaine , she was handing it out to the poor while reading her favorite bible verses .



  18. 18

    oohhhh…I bet this is correct, she "GAVE" them the purse because they asked for it? If that is the case, i.e. she didn't free will hand it over to them, then yeah, she's off

    its called CONSTITUTIONAL LAW and we all collectively should thank god its around…now having a lawyer to make that point FOR YOU..is a whole other entitlement,,,usually for the privileged…like her



  19. 19

    shes totally going to jail

  20. @v@ says – reply to this

    She's using the Lol-Lohan-they-were-a-friend's-jeans defense? Good luck.



  21. 21

    Wow this vulture nosed blonde is the biggest bitch of all, blaming a friend and making up stories about the color/style coordination of her outfit. What a brainless barbie.



  22. 22

    Fuck no. Supposedly she asked to be removed from the scene because of all the onlookers right? So if she got the special treatment because she's "famous" then how in the fuck is that right? She got removed from the scene at her own request and now that is the cops fault? No way. This bitch needs to go to jail and rot with the rest of the dirtbags.



  23. 23

    well, except that the idiot was trying to get the purse to the bathroom to get rid of the coke… cop wouldn't let her take it in there. She asked to get her chapstick out (really?? not her purse and she's going to use someone else's chapstick?? yuck!!) and was obviously trying to palm the coke and get rid of it… but she screwed up and the coke fell out and the cop CAUGHT IT IN HIS HAND. bahahahahaaa!!



  24. 24

    The chances of getting this thing thrown out under the 4th Amendment are pretty slim, especially if Paris was hot-boxing it up in a car prior to her arrest. The fact that she was getting out of a car that smelled like a Grateful Dead concert would give the cops probable cause to search her for weed, at the very least…and no, it wouldn't matter if they were looking for weed and found coke; the 4th Amendment isn't offense-specific when it comes to excluding evidence of a lawful search based on probable cause. Even though police didn't follow "standard procedures," there's a better chance of a Paris getting stitched ass-to-mouth to a Japanese tourist as the middle person of human centipede than getting the evidence excluded on Constitutional grounds. Sadly, the biggest shock for me of this entire story is that Paris actually owns a purse that's not designer…oh wait, no she doesn't…and THAT'S the lynchpin to her defense. I bet Lohan's lawyer is kicking herself for not thinking of the "rich entitled guttertroll defense" first.



  25. 25

    Okay I'm just so sick of her and everyone else who is rich and always getting away with shit. She and everyone else who gets away with shit, they all just need to go already and get arrested! and actually pay a price, just like the rest of us who do.



  26. 26

    Sorry but no cokehead is just going to leave coke lying around in some purse…that's some pretty valuable stuff to them! Leave it alone Paris…THREE strikes in one summer.



  27. 27

    She's gonna do what she can to get out of it. Ooooh the purse was borrowed. It's not mine! I thought it was gum!

    BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH

    These idiots get a pass while normal "commoners" will get the book thrown at them. Love how they ahve their own set of laws in rich land.



  28. 28

    Bitch needs to take her punishment and shut up already! Has she ever had to take responsibility for her actions? Has she ever fessed up and admitted anything in her life? The answer is hell no! Paris, we all know you're worthless and you live off Daddy's cash, but money can't buy you claaaass (been wanting to say that) and it sure as hell can't buy you a judge. Maybe Lohan can give you some pointers. Don't drop the soap.



  29. 29

    i hope she gets off.



  30. 30

    Well either way, Paris was caught with cocaine, which is really all the media cares about anyways



  31. 31

    Right. And when taking the purse…and using it all night…she didn't notice that there was cocaine in there. Bull shit.

  34. 34

    money and lies, she won't get in trouble.

    Re: backfire – Who knows, she might in prison! But I have her pegged as Bobby-Ann's Bitch…

    Alright, there are so many things wrong with her defense. I am a criminal attorney and can first state, no prosecutor or judge would call .8 grams of blow minimal, depending on location that's $50 - $80 of drugs and certainly enough for a fun little evening for Ms. Hilton. Second, she ASKED to be removed from the scene, so to argue illegal search due to transport from the crime scene is ridiculous. Finally, the whole "purse isn't mine" argument doesn't fly either. If you are carrying a purse, your ID is in the purse and you take it out of the vehicle with you when you go than you have possession plain and simple. Really, in the real world she would be facing jail time, especially given her history. I am actually astounded that they didn't even require bail as she is clearly a flight risk given her wealth and access to rapid transport. I had a client arrested recently in a car where .1 grams of cocaine was found and his bail was $3000!

    Don't expect justice to be served though people…



  37. 37

    Oh, sh*t…it wasn't her purse -and- the cops didn't follow "procedure" when they arrested her? Well, then they better let her go then. Sorry Ms. Hilton- you are such a productive member of society and help humanity so much- how dare they arrest YOU!
    I see this thread has degenerated to the point posters are evoking Constitutional Law. That's it- all of our civil liberties are riding on this "test" case…



  38. 38

    How can a bag of coke falling into the cops hand be illegally searched???
    She'll get away with this just like she gets away with everything!!!



  39. 39

    I doubt that argument would hold up unless she can claim that she was separated from the purse (and it was out of her control) in the time between when she was taken from the car to when she opened the purse to get the lip balm. Plus, the purse was not searched the coke was in plain view of the cop when the purse was opened to get the lip balm.
