Paris Hilton Charged With Cocaine Possession
The heiress claims that she has been 'setup'...
The socialite, who had 0.8g of cocaine in her handbag, could face up to four years in jail if convicted of the crime.
Hilton was with her boyfriend Cy Waits when she was stopped by the police after they noticed a 'odour of marijuana' coming from their vehicle.
Officer Dennis Flynn's police report states that: "Hilton said she needed to put some lip balm on and I handed her the purse."
"As she began to open it, I saw what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy begin to fall from the purse and into my hand."
He added: "She told me the purse was not hers, that she borrowed it from a friend."
The heiress is now allegedly claiming that she has been 'setup', insisting that the drugs were not hers.
Paris is said to have told friends: "I had no idea cocaine was there. I swear on my life. It could have been a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am."
The Sun also reported that Hilton claimed that the high-street brought handbag the cocaine was found in cannot be hers because it is 'too cheap.'
