Paris Hilton caught with marijuana

2010-07-19 09:54

Paris Hilton was briefly detained in Corsica after sniffer dogs detected a “quite small” quantity of marijuana in her bag, a French newspaper has reported.

Corse Matin newspaper on Saturday said officers at the airport in Figari found about one gram’s worth of marijuana. Hilton, who was crossing the French Mediterranean island in a private jet on Friday, was hauled in for questioning and released about 30 minutes later, the report said.

The newspaper said Hilton was travelling along with “personalities close to power in Malaysia” from the French capital to Porto-Cerno, in Sardinia.

In a posting on the TwitLonger site on Saturday, Hilton wrote: “Just to put an end to these rumours. The stories saying I have been arrested are completely false!”

“I am having the best vacation of my life.”

Earlier this month, Hilton was arrested after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on suspicion of possession of marijuana. The case was later dropped at a midnight court hearing.

Hilton pleaded guilty to alcohol-related reckless driving charges in 2007 and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. After spending about 23 days in jail, Hilton told US television host Larry King that the experience caused her to re-evaluate the role that partying played in her life. She said she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis”.
