Hilton pot cHarge dropped in africa
A court in South Africa has dropped a marijuana smoking case against Paris Hilton.
The socialite appeared late Friday in a FIFA World Cup courtroom after being arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana at a quarterfinal match between Brazil and the Netherlands.
The authorities dropped the charges against Hilton after Jennifer Rovero, who was accused with her, “acknowledged to be in possession of cannabis and pleaded guilty,” said Brig. Sally De Beer, a spokeswoman for the South African police.
A publicist for Hilton said the incident was a misunderstanding.
When told the case had been dropped, Hilton said “thank you” and left the courtroom.
Hilton wrote on Twitter: “I was not charged or arrested, cause I didn’t do anything.”
