Hollywood, CA (O! Online) – Paris Hilton was shocked today when she showed up to reclaim her impounded Bentley and found herself arrested and booked for violation of her previous probation for a drunk driving conviction last year. “This is just way out of proportion”, complained “The Simple Life ” star. To add insult to injury, within minutes of her being taken into custody, a picture of the arrest surfaced for sale on eBay with an opening bid of $500.
Hilton’s publicist Elliot Mintz immediately registered a complaint with the Los Angeles Police Dept over the handling of the arrest as well as the release of the photograph. “It’s a sad day in America when terrorist combatants seem to have more rights in regards to publicity than American citizens,” stated Mintz.
Mintz went on to state that he had immediately filed a brief with the clerk of superior court in Los Angeles insisting upon the immediate release of the hotel heiress so that she would not lose her spot at the popular Promises rehab facility in Malibu currently being attended by her BFF, Britney Spears. Mintz stated that Hilton was actually headed for her admission to the facility in the wing reserved for Spears when she was pulled over by police Tuesday night. “To be clear,this in no way implies that Paris has a problem,” stated Mintz. “She is merely responding to a cry for help from her friend, and wanting to show her support.”
Promises confirmed that if Hilton did not accept her admission slot it was highly likely she would not be allowed into the exclusive facility until a much later date. “We’re the hottest ticket in town right now,” stated a Promises spokesperson. “We have to abide by our reservation policy just like any other business in Hollywood.”
