Paris Hilton’s boyfriend is facing criminal charges stemming from his arrest with the celebrity socialite last summer on the Las Vegas Strip.
A complaint filed yesterday charges 35-year-old Cy Waits with a felony of being under the influence of dagga, and misdemeanour driving under the influence and possession of dagga.
The former nightclub mogul could face up to four years in prison on the felony charge.
Police say an officer stopped the sport utility vehicle that Waits was driving August 27 after smelling dagga smoke coming from the vehicle.
Waits is due for arraignment February 17.
A message seeking comment was left for his lawyer.
Hilton is serving a year of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanour cocaine possession and obstruction charges in the case.
