Wow, this girl is SO bad with cars! She backed into a parked car in a parking garage not too long ago.

And honestly, that musta been one big margarita she had to blow .08!

You know I don't know who really cares at all that she was arrested, and that 1 drink I don't beleive that one either She ought to go to jail just like any regular person I think, Oh I bet she wouldn't do to good in jail

Why would she even drive? Rich people in other countries don't drive. She could well afford to have a chauffeur. Where is her bodyguard?

It is not safe for her to go to a club without a designated driver, but I am even more worried about her lack of a bodyguard. She has to be thankful that she lives in the U.S........If she lives in any other country her body would be found floating on top of the river by the morning.

The story that she had only one drink is possible. When she was arrested she was at the lowest BAC that mandates arrest, .08. Keep in mind how small she is... an 8oz. glass of wine would have done it.

Breath sprays (with 98% ethanol) could also be the reason, as they are extremely popular with socialites lately.

Especially this one........

With Paris's obsessive-compulsiveness and her income level, she could very well go through one of those a day.

No, they admitted that she had a drink and was intoxicated.

Yep, one or two drinks could have made her blow .08.
She isn't Mel Gibson here....

Personally, I don't care if she had 2 drinks or 20. She shouldn't have gotten behind the wheel of a car.

I could not care anyl ess than I already do about what happens to this woman. I do, however, care that she made the decision to endanger the lives of every person she met while driving that night.

I'm not sure how much Paris weighs but... When I was 21 I weighed 113 lbs. I worked at a resturant and after my shift I drank 3 beers in quick succession, got into the car (I know, I know. Not smart.) and went to meet some friends. Ten minutes later I was pulled over for speeding. I failed my field sobriety tests (you know stand on one foot, alphabet backwards, touch your nose, etc) so they called in the breathlyzer unit. Approx. 15 minutes after leaving work having drank two beers I blew a .055 well under Arkansas limit (at that time) of .1. So I have to disagree with the statement that one drink would have put her over the limit (assuming she weighs about 100 lbs.).

She said she hadn't eaten all day, go figure.
But I read she called into Ryan Seacrest's morning show and lied through her teeth and said she did NOT get arrested for DUI.

She got stopped for erratic driving, so she was impaired.


Why the heck lie about it when the cops even said she got arrested for DUI.

It depends on the drink. I said a glass of wine because a beer is approx. equal to 4 oz. of wine If she would have had 8 oz. of wine she very well could have been right at .08.

Is she a repeat offender? I am not sure if first time DWI arrests should result in jail time.
post #14 of 23
NOONE should be driving, while impaired.

As for the alcohol content, of that ONE drink - it could have been one of those bathtub-sized margaritas, that contain 3-5 shots of tequila. Alcohol affects different people, in diferent ways. A lot of it IS based on body weight but, women are more easily impaired, than men - it has something to do with the ratio of body fat to muscle mass.

Now, back to REAL news.

This story just backed up everything I've ever said about that waste of space.

I'm glad no one was hurt because of her stupidity...
post #16 of 23
No one is a waste of space. God has created everything to be special.

Paris was young, and therefore, stupid. That was a mistake and hopefully the simple inconvinence of that would teach her a lesson. I still hope that she has a chauffeur/bodyguard, simply for the sake of her own safety and others.

She is young and most young people I know have some alcohol-related incident or another. That is all too sad a phenomenon but that does not invalidate one's existance as a human being.

P.S. That was kind of sweet that her sister came to bail her out of the police station. If I was ever arrested my family would chew me out rather than bail me out.

shengmei, you have a very kind heart. You are right, we are all God's creatures. In fact, your whole post was a good point.
I just wish we could go back to "Paris who?" I don't personally despise her, I don't know her, but her antics set a very bad example to young girls that don't have the money, power and influence that the Hilton fortune affords her. She could do so much good, but instead chooses to be an ill mannered, over dressed, alcohol swilling brat that thinks she can treat people any way she wants, even down to physical attacks. Now she is endangering people on the road, just because she can. I am so glad the officers did not let her go when they found out who she is.

Exactly...took the words right out of my mouth.

Paris is 25. I'm curious -- is that age young to you?

She is a hard worker from all the stuff I've "heard". I think she's a good business woman, it's just that, for me personally, she uses some questionable ways to promote herself.

It's also curious that she does do a lot for herself -- like someone asked - where is a body guard, chauffeur, or escort?

Also strange is that her attorney didn't come to bail her out -- That tells me that she's "tight" with her family, sounds like she called her sis first - another example that she doesn't depend on the services of people that she could afford to pay, but on her family - a good thing!, but curious. Maybe she doesn't have all that $$ that she's reported to have?

Also, she had been attending a benefit for children with cancer earlier, this shows her kind heart .... something the Media didn't talk about too much.

Just that some things don't make sense - I think the media give us mixed signals, wonder what their agenda is.

BTW, it still amazes me that people think drinking alcohol is like drinking soft drinks - hope she has learned, and maybe others will also learn the lesson because of the publicity that she's received.

In my opinion, if you are driving under the influence, reguardless of who you are or how "important" you are...you should be punished. I am glad she was taken to the police station. Nobody- has the right to drink and get in a car and drive drunk on the same streets that my family and my niece and nephews and I drive on daily! They do not have the right to put others lives at risk reguardless of who they are! Also, I could seriously care less how "important and famous" she is- my best friend drove drunk and underage in Martin,TN when she was at college there ....you better believe they took her butt to jail and she wound up with fines and community service- She didn't get two words past me before I told her off- I told her she had no right to put others lives at risk because of her stupidity. (she's my best friend, I'm honest- especially when she's doing something stupid that could hurt her or others). Let's just say she learned her lesson....and thankfully, nobody was killed in the process. I don't care who a person is- they do not have the right to put others lives at risks! -did i mention, my boyfriends a cop? It saddens me soo much how many people they pull over on a regular basis who are drunk out of their minds....how many people have died unnecessarily because someone just had to have that drink and weren't responsible enough to get a sober driver? How many people would still be alive right now were it not for irresponsible drivers- age does not matter and it is in no way, shape, or form an excuse. Just because a person is young and as others have said,"dumb" does NOT give them an excuse to drink and drive. I am young, I'm 21, and I have an occassional drink- but I never, never, never get behind the wheel afterwards (even if I just have a sip- i refuse to drive...why risk it?) I also will not get in the car with someone who's been drinking - nor will I let them drive- I will take the keys away and call a sober driver. Life is valuable...why risk it over a stupid drink? Life is beautiful- it should not be sacrificed over a margarita.

I don't think you will find anyone who thinks it was ok for her to be driving drunk...

I agree.

I think Paris made a horrible mistake, but that does not define her existance. No one should be defined by one act of their life (except when it comes to murder or attempted murder).

ETA: I feel so strongly about alcohol that neither myself or my husband had a drop of alcohol in a year, but I would never say that someone is worthless for making such a mistake as a DWI).

No, I don't think i will...I definitely agree with you on that one!I was just stating how I thought it was wrong-some people were excusing it because she was young...but youth is no excuse for drunk driving in my opinion.
