Is Paris Hilton banned from Las Vegas clubs?

“Because Vegas nightclubs are under so much scrutiny right now, I don’t know how welcome she would be,” says a club executive who has booked Hilton, 29, to host parties. “Considering she’s busted for cocaine, people might assume that she’s going to the club either to use coke or she’s already on coke, and no club wants to be associated with that.”

Moreover, even if Paris is schedule to be hosting several events in the near future, people and especially night clubs owners aren’t that happy to associate their names with Paris, due to recent charges.

For example, in Nevada liquor licenses are supervised by gambling regulators, and the consequences can be severe.

“A club would never be allowed to book Paris for an appearance right now,” says a former club executive who also has booked the heiress in the past. “A club would want to book her because of the press it would generate right now, but it would never happen because no one wants to jeopardize gaming licensing or liquor licensing.”

Besides, Paris would be entering a night club as any other person: “Her bag would be checked before entering the club.”

Paris Hilton is likely to avoid jail

Paris Hilton faces up to four years in a Nevada prison if convicted of the felony charge of possessing 0.8 grams of “powder cocaine” in a purse.

But the Los Angeles Times, quoting a legal expert, said Hilton was more likely to be sentenced to a diversion program if prosecutors are able to prove their case.

According to a police report, a LVMPD Traffic Officer pulled along Cy Waits and Paris Hilton’s Cadillac Escalade and “smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle”.

“As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy begin to fall from the purse and into my hand. I then immediately took the purse and dropped the bindle back on the top (waiting for another officer to witness the recovery),” writes the officer in the report.

Hilton told police she had borrowed the purse from a friend, and she thought the cocaine was gum.

The Los Angeles Times quoted Dmitry Gorin, a former Los Angeles County prosecutor and noted defense attorney, as saying that prosecutors would need to prove that it was Hilton’s purse and also have to overcome any doubts that the marijuana smell came from her vehicle.

Similar arrests are often made on the Las Vegas Strip, and most end up in some kind of diversion program unless the person has a lengthy prior record, he said.

Hilton has had dust-ups with the law, but she is not quite a hardened criminal. She spent three weeks in a Los Angeles jail in 2007 for violating probation on a reckless driving charge. In July, she was detained on suspicion of possessing marijuana in South Africa following a World Cup soccer match, but was released by police and not charged.

After her latest arrest, her lawyers issued a statement encouraging people “not to rush to judgment until all of the facts have been dealt with in a court of law.”

According to Reuters, there was no further statement from the lawyers on Monday, and court officials in Las Vegas also declined comment.

Paris Hilton, charged with felony, says the purse was not hers

When the officer looked over, Paris Hilton “started to put the window of the vehicle up”. he told the driver – Cy Waits – to pull his vehicle over.

The policeman asked for a LVMPD supervisor to be en route to his location because “a large gathering began to take place”.

Cy Waits failed a series of field sobriety tests and the officer said he was going to arrest Waits and “due to the strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle” he didn’t feel “comfortable releasing the vehicle to the passenger in the car, Paris Hilton”

The supervisor called at the scene told Paris Hilton that she would need to exit the vehicle as he believed that the officer was going to search it for narcotics he had smelled.

Hilton told him “she was extremely embarrassed, due to all the people taking pictures of her, and she did not want to be seen by them.”

Paris then asked the supervisor if he would accompany her inside the Wynn Hotel, which they were in front of, “to prevent her from being molested by the growing crowd” and also asked to go somewhere private and out of the public’s eye because “she needed to use the bathroom badly”.

A Wynn Hotel security officer told them they can use the security room. Paris Hilton “was carrying a purse and a few other small items”.

After telling her to place her purse on the table “Hilton said she needed to put some lip balm on”

“As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy begin to fall from the purse and into my hand. I then immediately took the purse and dropped the bindle back on the top (waiting for another officer to witness the recovery),” writes the officer in the report.

In front of two other police officers he “then read her Miranda rights”. (“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say …”)

In her only defense Paris Hilton told “the purse is not hers, and that she had borrowed it from a friend.”

She also said “several cosmetics items inside the purse were not hers, but the $1,300 cash and the credit cards were hers.”

The LVMPD supervisor asked Hilton whose cocaine it was and she said “she had not seen it but now thought it was gum.”

At the end of the report, the officer concludes that “Due to the fact that the suspected cocaine fell from the purse Hilton was carrying, that the suspect cocaine was found near a broken prescription pill that Hilton admitted was hers, that she admitted that other items inside the purse were hers (including a package of Zig Zag wrappers, which are commonly used to roll and smoke marijuana)” … “I placed Hilton under the arrest for possession of a controlled substance cocaine.”

In the end, the suspect cocaine, was proven to be in fact … cocaine.

Later, Paris changed her story with friends, saying it is her purse but had been in the possession of a friend.

From the “it’s not my purse” to “I had no idea the cocaine was there” … it’s a long way …

Moreover, Paris is even telling friends, “It could be a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am.” She also believes the cops were “star-struck and blew the whole thing way out of proportion.”
