Paris Hilton’s ex-boyfriend, and nightclub promoter, Cy Waits, has taken a plea deal in connection with the felony driving under the influence of marijuana and misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Waits was pulled over last summer on the Vegas strip and arrested, and his then girlfriend, Paris Hilton, was also arrested for possession of cocaine.
After Cy’s arrest last year, Steve Wynn fired Cy from his co-manager position at XS Encore and Tryst at Wynn Las Vegas. Cy’s twin brother Jesse kept his job though.
Wynn released a statement about his decision, that said: “Cy Waits has been separated from the company and is free to pursue other interests. Wynn has no further comment on this matter.”
Waits wasn’t in court Monday morning for the hearing, but will appear on Wednesday at which time he will formally accept the plea deal. Hilton pled guilty last year to a misdemeanor charge of cocaine possession and obstruction of justice. The hotel heiress is serving one year of probation.
Terms of the Waits’ deal weren’t discussed in court Monday.
