"I Thought The Cocaine Was Chewing Gum" - Paris Hilton


Las Vegas prosecutors, yesterday, didn't believe Hilton, 29, when she explained, "I thought the cocaine was chewing gum" defense. The charge is felony drug possession.

The situation came about when the hotel heiress and her boyfriend, Cy Walls-34, were driving down Las Vegas Boulevard late Friday.

A motorcycle police officer stopped them after smelling marijuana fumes coming from their Cadillac, Clark County prosecutors.

A crowd gathered around. Officers allowed Hilton inside The Wynn Hotel, Vegas Police Lt. Dennis Flynn. "Hilton said she needed to put some lip balm on, and I handed her the purse from the table," Flynn wrote. "As she began to open it. I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy to fall from the purse and into my hand." Police stated that they found cocaine in Hilton's purse, but she denied owning the drugs or purse per court papers.

Cash, credit cards, an Albuterol tablet and Zig- Zag rolling papers, Hilton said belonged to her.

"I asked Hilton whose cocaine it was, and she said she had not seen it but now thought it was gum," Flynn wrote.

David Chesnoff, Hilton's lawyer, declined to comment on the case yesterday.
