The police report for Paris Hilton has been released. We learn that her middle name is Whitney and she is defendant #2756392. The arrest report also contains some confusing details that you can expect her attorney, the locally connected and celebrity friendly David Chesnoff, to go to town on.
Perhaps the single strangest description in the report involves the sketchy location the police offer for the cocaine in the purse.
In the report, the officer recounts, that Hilton was not so much searched as dropped the cocaine into the officer’s waiting hand. Seriously! Hilton opens her purse to get lip balm, and according to the officer’s arrest report: “As she began to open it, I saw a clear bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggy begin to fall from the purse and into my hand. I then immediately took the purse and put the bindle back on the top….” So, as you can see the officer has chosen the location that he thinks the cocaine fell from though he seems to have noticed the bindle already in motion. So, he could be right, but as she was moving the contents of the purse, he could be wrong.
Obviously having cocaine on top of the purse at all —with Paris’ own possessions underneath– does not suggest Hilton was given the bag with the bindle already inside. But the police claim a very exact placement for the bindle in the purse. The officer notes Hilton’s asthma medicine was “found near the suspected cocaine.” Would that be near the top of the purse where the officer placed the bindle? Or, if the original location, why does the officer not mention in the arrest report that he specifically saw the spot the bindle was placed inside the purse before the cocaine “fell” into his hands?
