Celebrity socialite Paris Hilton has been arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession following a World Cup match, South African police has revealed. It is reported that Hilton was detained following Netherlands’ 2-1 victory over Brazil in Friday’s quarter-final tie at Port Elizabeth’s Nelson Mandela Bay stadium.
A police spokeswoman, Brig. Marinda Mills, would not confirm Hilton’s name but did admit that a high-profile individual would be appearing in court on drugs-related charges.
AP reports that Hilton’s publicist Dawn Miller was awaiting further details of the incident before commenting. A police offer, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the news agency that Hilton had been caught with marijuana. It is reported she was escorted from the stadium for allegedly smoking the drug.
