Hilton was booked into the Clark County Detention Centre on a charge of possession of cocaine, Las Vegas police spokesman Marcus Martin said. The 29-year-old Hilton was in a car driven by a friend that was stopped when officers noticed what they suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from it, he said.

“Officers noticed a vehicle leaving smoke trail of a controlled substance (and) made a stop based on that,” Martin said.

During the stop, officers found what appeared to be a drug on Hilton and later tests showed that it was cocaine, Martin said. He didn’t know how much was found.

He said Hilton was apparently recognised by passersby and a crowd quickly gathered in the area where the vehicle had been pulled over.

Police watch commander Lt Wayne Holman said Hilton was still being held around 2 am on Saturday but would probably be freed on her own recognisance later in the morning.
Hilton’s manager and a publicist didn’t immediately return calls for comment.
