She was taken to the Mount Road Police Station in St. Croix just before 8pm.
Detective Mark Magadlela confirmed to a South African news site that Hilton was indeed at the police station and has since been released. No further details were given.
A spokesperson for Hilton tells RadarOnline.com they will comment within the hour.
Hilton’s Los Angeles-based lawyer tells RadarOnline.com the 29-year-old has served her probation period, after her 2007 conviction for alcohol-related reckless driving.
A judge placed Hilton on 36 months probation for her 2006 DUI, when her blood-alcohol level was found to be .08, the threshold in California for being a drunk driver.
The probation ended in January, we’re told. So in one way, Hilton is in luck by five months.
