Paris Hilton was arrested and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Los Angeles, California police stopped the 25 year-old hotel heiress and social icon in Hollywood around 12:30 am Thursday after noticing her driving “erratically.”
LA Police Officers observed symptoms of intoxication and conducted a field sobriety test, which Hilton reportedly failed. A breath test registered a blood alcohol level just above the California legal limit of .08. She was charged with a misdemeanor DUI and released.
Hilton was driving her Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren home from a charity event where she is said to have had one margarita. The event, hosted by Dave Navarro, was held at the West Hollywood hotspot Dragon Fly. It included a concert by Suicide Girls and was organized to benefit brain cancer patients. At the time of the arrest Hilton was accompanied by Kimberley Stewart, daughter of rocker Rod Stewart.
