Paris DUI

Paris Hilton booked on DUI charges



ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES - Paris Hilton was arrested early Thursday for investigation of driving under the influence, police said.
Hilton was arrested shortly before 12:30 a.m. after being pulled over in Hollywood, said police Officer I. Isabella, who declined to give his first name.

Police stopped Hilton because she was "driving erratically," he 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," Isabella said, reading a police statement.


Hilton was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and released, he said.

Her spokesman, Elliot Mintz, confirmed the arrest and said police detected the minimum blood-alcohol level to warrant an arrest. The legal limit in California is 0.08 percent.

"She's absolutely fine," Mintz said. "She didn't appear in the least bit to be intoxicated."

At the time of her arrest, Hilton was driving home in her Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren from a charity event where she had one drink, a margarita, he said. She had spent the day shooting a music video for her new album, "Paris."


The driving under the influence symptoms were "probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued," Mintz said.

She was picked up from the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood station by her sister, Nicky, Nicky's boyfriend, actor Kevin Connolly, and Mintz.

In June, Hilton had a fender-bender accident when her Range Rover backed into a car in a parking garage after a shopping trip

I love the "spin" her camp puts on it. She had 1 margarita, an empty stomach, and was at a charity event.

Whatever.

No mugshot, but here's a video of her arriving at her home after the incident

Mintz: "It's unfortunate she was behind the wheel even with one drink." She's the most FORTUNATE person on the planet earth to have the things she does with no talent, no brain & no character.

I like the paparazzi guy who kept on saying "he he he" in a high pitched voice as they were pulling in to the driveway.

tmz.com

Just hours after her arrest on suspicion of DUI, Paris Hilton called into the On Air with Ryan Seacrest show on LA's KIIS-FM this morning and told Ryan that she may have been driving a little fast in her Mercedes McLaren SLR, but it was only because she wanted a burger.

Paris told Ryan she had an excruciatingly long day on Wednesday filming the video for her new single "Nothing in This World." She told Ryan she wrapped shooting for the day, went to dinner with sister Nicky and girlfriends (guess she didn't eat at dinner), attended a charity event hosted by Dave Navarro and had one margarita. She says she left to drive home -- which, she says, was only a few blocks away-- and may have been going a little fast because she was "starving" and just wanted an In-N-Out Burger!


TMZ spoke with Paris as she was driving home from jail, stopping for Parliament Lights cigarettes en route. She says she "regrets it occurred," and adds that she has been up for 24 hours, having shot a music video all day. (TMZ had exclusive access to the music video set and our video will be posted in a few hours.) Paris says she had nothing to eat and no rest the entire day.

TMZ spoke with Lt. Russ Wong, the watch commander on duty at the Hollywood station. He tells TMZ Paris received no special treatment, however he acknowledges he did not hold her at the station for the standard minimum of three hours. Lt. Wong says he released her after an hour and a half because a gaggle of paparazzi appeared at the station and posed a significant traffic hazard which he needed to abate. Lt. Wong says it's SOP to release a first-time DUI suspect without bail if a responsible party is there to drive them home -- Elliot Mintz was that party.

Driving under the influence is a misdemeanor. If convicted, the defendant will not be jailed, will be given three months' probation, and will be ordered to enter an alcohol program and will have his or her license restricted for 90 days.

So the lesson I'm supposed to learn from this is that I shouldn't drive after working too hard?

I made the mistake of watching about 2 minutes of the Simple Life the other day...I think my IQ went down about 20 points in the process

Working too hard and hungry ? Is that anything like Lindsay Lohan's "exhaustion" ? God, I'm tired of all of these interchangeable halfwits.
