A criminal complaint was filed against Paris Hilton’s boyfriend, Cy Waits today relating to his August 2010 DUI arrest.

Because Waits was previously arrested and released for the incident, a summons will be issued for his scheduled court appearance on February 17, at Justice Court, Las Vegas.

EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Criminal Complaint Filed Against Cy Waits

As RadarOnline.com previously reported on August 26 authorities in Las Vegas pulled over a Cadillac SUV Hilton was riding and Waits was driving, claiming to smell marijuana coming from it.

Waits was subsequently arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as was Hilton after police said they found cocaine in the socialite's designer purse.

After an initial series of excuses didn't hold water, Hilton pleaded guilty to the drug charges and received two six-month suspended jail terms in connection with the cocaine possession, as well as $2,000 in fines, 200 hours of community service and mandatory entry into a substance abuse program.
