The 29-year-old hotel heiress has been charged with possession of a controlled substance and is set to be arraigned on October 27.

Paris Hilton has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. CNN reported that on Monday, August 30, prosecutors in Clark County, Nevada filed the felony charge against the hotel heiress after cops found 0.8 grams of cocaine in her purse at a traffic stop on Friday, August 27.

Courthouse spokeswoman Jillian Prieto revealed that Paris is set to be arraigned in Clark County District Court on October 27. The charges could land the 29-year-old socialite anything from probation to four years in prison as well as $5,000 fine.

Paris was arrested on Friday after police, at about 11:30 P.M., pulled over a Cadillac Escalade in which Paris was a passenger. According to an arrest report, cops smelled "a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle." The driver, Cy Waits, a Las Vegas nightclub mogul and Paris' lover, was taken into custody after failing on field sobriety tests.

The police later found the cocaine after Paris accidentally dropped it from her purse. The arrest report mentioned, "She told me the purse was not hers, and that she had borrowed it from a friend." However, she admitted that a broken tablet of Albuterol, which is commonly prescribed for diseases such as asthma, a $1,300 cash and credit cards in the purse were hers.

"I asked Hilton whose cocaine it was, and she said she had not seen it but now thought it was gum," the report read. She was later placed under arrest and transported into the Clark County Detention Center, where the white substance was confirmed to be 0.8 grams of cocaine. She was allowed to leave the jail on Saturday morning, August 28 after authorities determined she was not a flight risk.
