Paris Hilton DUI

 For most celebrities, welcoming the DUI Club is an instant image crisis. For Paris Hilton, it could be a career boost.



"Paris Hilton being arrested just makes her more famous," stated veteran publicist Michael Levine. "She has devoted her entire adult life to appearing to be the princess of parties."


Hilton’s publicist, Elliot Mintz, confirmed the Hilton's festive nature. "She’s been known to have a drink or two."

Hilton was arrested by Los Angeles police officers in Hollywood on suspicion of driving under the influence. During the arrest she was briefly handcuffed. Hilton was booked at LAPD’s Hollywood station at 1:43 a.m. and released shortly afterward, claimed Nick Velasquez, a spokesman for the city attorney’s office.


This is Hilton’s first drunk-driving arrest, Mintz revealed, adding that he doesn’t expect the incident to hurt her image.


"The people who enjoy Paris as a comedian or actress on TV or as a singer on her CD , a woman who seems to have captured the imagination of so many people, I don’t know if this is going to have any impact on them one way or another," he declared. "But, of course, she regrets what took place."

Hours after her release, Hilton defended herself to radio host Ryan Seacrest during his Thursday morning show on local station KIIS-FM.

"It was nothing," claimed Hilton, 25.

Actually Hilton excused herself by saying she was "starving because I had not ate all day" and possibly "speeding a little bit" in her Mercedes-Benz SLR on her way to grab a bite.

"I was just really hungry and I wanted to have an In-N-Out burger," Paris Hilton confessed to Carl’s Jr.


Hilton revealed she had "one margarita" that night.



She told the Los Angeles Times that she "doesn’t like the taste of alcohol."



"It grosses me out," she claimed.

Hilton told Seacrest that police stopped her for speeding.

An LAPD spokeswoman revealed Hilton was driving erratically.
"Officers observed the vehicle driving in an erratic manner so they pulled the car over," according to officer Marjan Mobasser.


To be more exact, Hilton’s blood-alcohol level was .08 percent — the minimum to warrant an arrest, Mintz said.






The arresting officers were "really nice," Hilton said.



"There was a lot of paparazzi around so I think they were trying to make a statement," she told Seacrest. "Everything I do is blown out of proportion and it really hurts my feelings."

Hilton is expected to be arraigned Sept. 28, said Velasquez of the city attorney’s office. Penalties for a first drunken-driving offense typically include a fine, probation, an alcohol-rehabilitation program, license suspension and "other DUI-related conditions" such as community service, he said.


LAPD officials said they will not release Hilton’s arrest report or her mug shot.

Just for the record, the maximum penalty for a first misdemeanor DUI offense is a $1,000 fine and six months in jail.

Paris Hilton's original DUI charges alleging that on September 27, 2006 she was driving while under the influence, and while "under the combined influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug. In January 2007 she subsequently pleaded no contest to reckless driving charges stemming from the incident. A judge sentenced her to 3 years of probation, mandatory attendance at an alcohol education program, and fines of $1,500.


On May 4, 2007, a judge sentenced Hilton to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation. According to prosecutors, she failed to enroll in an alcohol education course by mid-April 2007, and was stopped for two more traffic violations, including driving with a suspended license.
