Paris Hilton’s Excuse: “I Thought It Was Gum”
Oh come on! This has got to be the lamest excuse I have ever heard from Paris Hilton. Although, the fact that she has managed to come up with yet another excuse to try to get out of a tight squeeze is not surprising at all.
Just last month, her excuse came in the person of Jennifer Rovero, who is believed to have taken the fall for marijuana possession on Hilton’s behalf . This time around Paris blames her latest run-in with the law for cocaine possession on a poor piece of gum – and the owner of that purse which Paris claimed to belong to a friend.
According to the police report, once inside the Wynn Hotel security holding room, Hilton asked if she could put on lip balm. As she went to open her purse, a “small bindle of what [the officer] believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy” fell into the policeman’s hand. Police later said test results showed that it was about 0.8 grams of cocaine.
When asked about it Hilton supposedly told the police officer that “she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum.” — oh and yes, that the bag was not hers to begin with.Follow us on Twitter to get free up-to-date news via tweets from the World Correspondents, or you can subscribe to us by entering your e-mail below.
