JOHANNESBURG—Paris Hilton was detained in the South African city of Port Elizabeth on Friday for possession of marijuana, two South African police officers said. The officers spoke on condition of anonymity, since they were not authorized to release Hilton's name before she appeared in court.

...

A police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Hilton was caught with an unspecified amount of marijuana.

"She was found in possession of some amount of dagga," the officer said, using the local name for marijuana. "We don't know how much. It's a high profile person, only the top cops are dealing with it," he said.

Translation: the Hilton family is going to have to pay some bribes.

TMZ has learned Paris Hilton was detained by cops in South Africa ... because they suspect someone in her entourage was smoking marijuana.

We’re told Paris is still being detained. Cops confronted her and her peeps at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Someone close to the situation tells TMZ ... Paris wasn’t smoking dope. But an officer has reportedly said Paris was caught red-handed with weed.

Well, the over-under treatment from her, ahem, former co-star, may have caused permanent itching...I'd watch out for that.

Looks like there's been a little bit of augmentation there. That lower lip has been augmented a bunch too much.

Easy on that! The First ‘Lady’ thinks that to be natural. So does a plethora of race card dealers.

Like I really care about the Paris Hiltons of the world. For all their money, fame and silver spoons in their mouths, how many of her ilk have ever done anything constructive or remotely intelligent, even less, anything to benefit those less fortunate? And hiring Mexican maids to pick up after their lazy butts does not count.

She’s had a bunch of work done on her face, including cheek implants and reshaped chin, but looks like she’s been hitting the collagen lip injections to hard as well.

Its kind of sad because I saw teenage pictures of her before all the work and she had natural good looks without makeup and much cuter face.
All the work has done nothing but make her look older and more expressionless.

That quote has been around since before Paris was born. I think she just borrowed it.

all clear

just a misunderstanding..

Paris Hilton marijuana charges dropped in SAfrica

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa – A court in South Africa has dropped a marijuana-smoking case against Paris Hilton.

The socialite appeared late Friday in a FIFA World Cup courtroom after being arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana at a quarterfinal match between Brazil and the Netherlands.

The authorities dropped the charges against Hilton, after her co-accused, Jennifer Rovero, "acknowledged to be in possession of cannabis, and pleaded guilty," said Brig. Sally De Beer, a spokeswoman for South African police.

Rovero, 31, from New York, was sentenced to a fine of 1000 rand ($130) or 30 days imprisonment, De Beer said.

A publicist for Hilton said the incident was a "misunderstanding."

Riiight.. who knows what really happened.

For all we know.. she was caught red handed with it and paid a hefty price to authorities.. in order for it to come out that it was all a miserunderstanding.

They know she’s got money and I highly doubt she got away scott free.

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa – The former Playboy playmate convicted of possessing marijuana while accompanying Paris Hilton to a World Cup game is persona non grata in South Africa.

Ronnie Mamoepa, a spokesman for the immigration department, said Saturday that Jennifer Rovero had two weeks to leave the country, and would not be welcome back for at least two years.

If only their crappy country took real crime as seriously as they take some foreigner possessing plant matter it might be safe there.
