As the world knows by now, Paris Hilton had herself quite the Friday night. She was arrested by the Las Vegas police on cocaine possession charges after the cops spotted her and boyfriend Cy Waits hotboxing on the Vegas strip. Whoops!
Well, TMZ is now reporting that prosecutors are planning to charge Paris with possession of a controlled substance as early as this afternoon, a charge that could land her behind bars for four years. According to police, Paris was in possession of 0.8 grams of cocaine — about a quarter of an 8-ball — which is enough to be considered a felony in the great state of Nevada.
However, the police report also notes that in addition to cocaine, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia (Zig Zags!), Paris also had a “broken tablet of Albuterol,” a prescription medication that is normally used to treat wheezing, in her purse. Assuming of course that Paris isn’t a closet asthmatic (Is she? Email us Nicky!), what would she be doing with Albuterol when she’s already high on weed and coke?
Well, according to the internet (always a reputable source!), Albuterol is a stimulant that “raises blood pressure, heart rate and helps the body burn fat.” Ah, we see, it’s a trendy new designer weight loss drug (that will no doubt skyrocket in popularity now that Paris had it in her purse)! Interestingly enough, it is frequently abused by bodybuilders when they’re trying to cut weight before a big event. Is there something you’re not telling us, Paris?
