'The Simple Life' star Paris Hilton charged with Los Angeles DUI

UPI News Service, 09/26/2006 

Socialite Paris Hilton was charged in Los Angeles Tuesday with driving under the influence and with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher.

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.
