LAS VEGAS – Smoke wafting from a Cadillac Escalade on the Las Vegas Strip ignited Paris Hilton’s latest legal troubles late Friday, when a motorcycle officer who suspected the smell was marijuana stopped the vehicle and police say a bag of cocaine fell out of the 29-year-old socialite’s purse.
. . .
This time, the hotel heiress was with her boyfriend, Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits, who manages a club inside the Wynn Las Vegas and was driving the black SUV that the officer stopped nearby at 11:22 p.m. Friday.
. . .
Waits, 34, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Misdemeanors are punishable by up to a year in county jail.
The last paragraph shows law enforcement did its job: arrest the driver for being under the influence. That is the danger to the rest of us. Everything else is a waste of tax dollars and people.
