The I hate Paris Hilton news just keeps getting better and better. While Paris being denied entry to Bungalow, then crying, and having her album "hacked" were both really fun to hear about, I don't think it gets any better than this. TMZ reports that Paris Hilton was arrested for driving under the influence early Thursday.
TMZ has learned LAPD officers noticed Paris driving her Mercedes McLaren SLR erratically at 12:31 AM and stopped her. They believed she exhibited signs of intoxication. We're told they administered a field sobriety test, and Paris blew a .08. In California, driving with a .08 blood alcohol level is the minimum level for DUI.
Paris was arrested and taken to the LAPD Hollywood division, where she was booked. The officers who stopped the car did not know it was Paris Hilton until they approached the vehicle on foot. Police sources say she was cooperative. Paris had a passenger in the car -- Kimberly Stewart, Rod Stewart's daughter.
I swear, this week keeps getting better and better. Of course, nothing is going to come of this, since it takes a lot more than one DUI to actually punish a celebrity. But maybe the judge will hate her as much as I do, and lock her up. Not even for drunk driving, but just for being Paris Hilton. What bigger threat to society is there?
Of course, Paris and her lackies deny she was drunk, saying that she was tired from working all day, and not eating. *COUGH* Bullshit! *COUGH*
TMZ spoke with Paris as she was driving home from jail, stopping for Parliament Lights cigarettes en route. She says she "regrets it occurred," and adds that she has been up for 24 hours, having shot a music video all day. (TMZ had exclusive access to the music video set and our video will be posted in a few hours.) Paris says she had nothing to eat and no rest the entire day.
Update: Take a look at the police record from Paris Hilton's arrest. Best part: Paris' middle name is Lohitney. WTF is that!?
