As has previously reported, last Friday night, Las Vegas police said they pulled over the Cadillac SUV Hilton and her boyfriend Cy Waits were riding in, after they smelled a suspicious odor coming from the vehicle. After Waits was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, police said they found cocaine in Hilton’s purse.

The incident marks the third drug-related run-in with the law the heiress has had this summer. During her international vacation, Hilton was stopped twice by police on suspicion of marijuana possession (charges were dropped against Hilton after she was detained July 2 at the World Cup in South Africa).
