Hil­ton pot cHarge dropped in africa

Austin American-Statesman - - SATURDAYBRIEFING -

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.”
