JOHANNESBURGParis 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.
Top Cops = Top Bribes by a Top Person.
I hope they toss her good for nothing butt in prison
Not to worry Sud AFRika is not Islamic, she is safe.. if she was packing what mccartney has, she’ll be home for the 4th..
I hear Lindsay was in another little thing early this morning at a club.. too bad she and paris couldn’t share a cell for a few months.. Oh wait, they’d like that huh.. make it adjacent cells. :-)
What does Mccartney have?
Home Grown stuff from Obama you don’t think all they grow is vegetables at the White House.
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.
Give her a one-way ticket to Singapore.
Just not that pretty. Never understood the fascination with rich out of control kids.
PLEASE tell me those lips are photoshopped!! She had nice normal lips before.
Actually, she’s thinking of me.
Um, what did you give her?
For some reefer? Please. Just because you don’t like Paris Hilton doesn’t mean she deserves to go to jail.
Very funny - let’s just say, the time of her life.
Well, the over-under treatment from her, ahem, former co-star, may have caused permanent itching...I'd watch out for that.
Good, because I want it cleared up by the time she gets out. :-)
Looks like there's been a little bit of augmentation there. That lower lip has been augmented a bunch too much.
Lol! They can keep her!
This time, however, the US is declining to cross the Atlantic to liberate Paris.
“PLEASE tell me those lips are photoshopped!! She had nice normal lips before.
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.
Ripped that one from my skull....I was just wishing aloud that she was caught in Singapore.
just a misunderstanding..
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."
LOL. No doubt!
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.
Sure did get handled quick tho, huh?
they had a series dope crackdown leading up to the World Cup being there..
Pot possession in South Africa. Real big news there.
Her galfriend is now persona non grata..
Paris Hilton’s companion ordered to leave SAfrica
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.
