Hilton's arraignment was scheduled for Thursday but "The Simple Life" star is not required to be in the courtroom, People magazine reported.

The two misdemeanor charges stem from Hilton's Sept. 7 arrest after she was stopped for "driving erratically" and found to have a blood alcohol level of .08 -- the minimum for a DUI arrest under California law.

Hilton later told radio host Ryan Seacrest she had not eaten all day, had one drink that evening and was probably "speeding a little bit" in her haste to get to a fast-food restaurant.

Hilton, 25, faces a maximum six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted, but an expert told People she would most likely be fined, ordered to attend DUI classes and put on probation for three years.
