Hilton Was Going For Burger Before Arrest
LATEST: Paris Hilton was on her way to get a burger at US fast food chain IN-N-OUT when she was pulled over by police for suspected drink driving. The STARS ARE BLIND singer called in to Ryan Seacrest's Los Angeles radio show to explain the incident this morning (07SEPT06). She said of her arrest, "You know what, it was nothing. I'd been shooting my music video for my new song NOTHING IN THIS WORLD. "I got off last night at about 10 pm then I went and had dinner with my sister and all my girlfriends and then we went to this charity event Dave Navarro threw for brain tumours. "I had one margarita, and I was starving 'cause I had not ate all day. I was on my way to In-N-Out, which is probably three blocks away, and I'm in my (Mercedes) SLR, which is a little fast, so maybe I was speeding a little bit and I got pulled over." When Seacrest asked if she was driving erratically, as was reported in the police filing, she replied, "No, I was just really hungry and I wanted to have an In-N-Out burger!" Hilton claims she was only taken to the police station because authorities wanted to make it seem like she was not getting preferential treatment because she's a celebrity. She said, "There was a lot paparazzi around, so I think they wanted me to make a statement. They even said, 'There's people watching, we don't want them to think we're giving you special treatment.' "I totally understood. I was in there (the police station) 15 minutes and out." Hilton said the police "were so nice" and said she was shocked by the press coverage surrounding her arrest. She adds, "Everything I do is blown out of proportion. It really hurts my feelings."
