Seen here in Hawaii yesterday without a care in the world, Paris Hilton was apparently released on her own recognizance in less than three hours from the Clark County Detention Center following her arrest for cocaine possession last week. Turns out this is barely a fraction of the time served by normal inmates who didn’t fall out of wealthy vaginas. What are the odds? The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
Jessica Murray of Bob’s Bail Bonds said her clients “are all asking me ‘why can’t we get out that quick.’ ”
Murray, whose clientele is mostly “working girls” charged with nonviolent soliciting or trespassing counts, said the average booking time on those charges is four to 12 hours, followed by another four to 12 hours until release.
But authorities say they weren’t doing Hilton any favors. The 5-foot, 8-inch model/actress/celebrity was just too hot to handle.
“Yeah, she was treated differently so I don’t have a disruption of my process here at the county jail,” said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Deputy Chief Jim Dixon, who runs the detention center. “When you bring somebody in like that, everybody comes over and tries to look at them. I’d have officers attempting to keep inmates away from her. I’d have disruptions.”
In the Deputy Chief’s defense, trying to process a celebrity has to be a gigantic pain in his ass even without a media circus waiting in the parking lot. That said, this Jessica Murphy person thinks Paris Hilton should’ve been treated like a common prostitute which is probably the most valid and logical argument I’ll ever hear in my life. Seriously, how is this woman not running for president? She has ideas.
