Paris Hilton was arrested in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on Friday afternoon and charged with possession of marijuana after cops caught the celeb puffing a joint during today’s Brazil vs. Netherlands World Cup quarterfinal match, according to reports.
Paris, who arrived in the country for the coveted sporting event on Thursday, was taken into custody following the incident at the Nelson Mandela Stadium and later released. The news appears to have broken on Twitter after several people at the game claimed the formerSimple Life star was arrested in the middle of today’s soccer match. However, officials in the South African city are remaining tight-lipped on the details surrounding PH’s imprisonment.
”There is an inquiry? I don’t want to comment further,” a Port Elizabeth Police spokesperson told the press.
“EWN can officially confirm that socialite Paris Hilton has been arrested on a drug related charge and will appear in court later tonight,” a blogger for Eyewitness News (EWN) in South Africa wrote on the network’s Twitter.com page a few hours later.
This isn’t Paris’ first tango with the long arm of the law. In 2007, the heiress, 29, spent three weeks in the Los Angeles County Jail for violating the terms of her probation on a prior DUI charge.
Kids, don’t do drugs!
