US authorities say one of the country's socialites, Paris Hilton, has been released from a brief detention in Las Vegas.
Hilton was arrested on Friday evening for allegedly possessing cocaine in her purse. Few details were given. CNN reports that Hilton was riding in a black Cadillac when police smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. Both Hilton and the driver were arrested. This is not the first time that Hilton has been taken into custody for allegedly possessing drugs.
