Paris Hilton was arrested by South African police on suspicion of possessing cannabis during yesterday’s World Cup quarter-final between Holland and Brazil.
Cops swooped on the socialite as she left the match and she appeared before a special World Cup court (perhaps Luis Suarez should appear later today) late last night. A member of her entourage was blamed for possessing the drugs and she was released without any charge.
The other person was fined for the offence and police apologised to Hilton.
She wrote on her Twitter page: “Hey guys, there’s a lot of crazy rumors going around. Just want you all to know the truth. Everything is completely fine. I was not charged or arrested, cause I didn’t do anything. I was assisting the police with the investigation and answering their questions. Everyone was super nice and friendly to me. I love South Africa! Such an amazing place, especially during The World Cup! Hope that clears everything up. Love you guys, thanks for your concern.”
