No Special Treatment For Hilton
A Las Vegas police spokesman has insisted Paris Hilton received "no special treatment" after she was arrested on cocaine possession charges on Friday night (27Aug10).
The socialite and her boyfriend Cy Waits were driving along Sin City's famous strip when their car was pulled over by cops.
Waits was arrested on suspicion of DUI and Hilton was booked for alleged felony drug possession after a police officer found a suspicious-looking white powder in her purse.
Hilton was checked into the Clark County Detention Center, but was freed in less than three hours - prompting rumours her celebrity status secured her a quick release.
But a Las Vegas police spokesman is adamant Hilton was processed like any other detainee, telling the Chicago Sun-Times, "(She) received absolutely no special treatment. We are used to celebrities here. They are treated no differently than anyone else."
