When Paris Hilton was released from that Las Vegas jail for cocaine possession, she got sprung much quicker than your average Joe – in about half the time, no less.
Why? Because Paris is special? Well, not so much. Apparently, the authorities were so worried about the ruckus caused by her presence that they released her much quicker than those with much lesser offenses.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports:
“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.”
So just because they wanted her out early, she was released in less time than those who have committed lesser offenses. She was sprung from jail in three hours. I’m not buying it. Are you?
