Paris Hilton's not-my-drugs excuse part of a time-honored celebrity bust tradition
Hey, those aren't my drugs! Paris Hilton is the latest celeb to offer the time-honored explanation for inconvenient proximity to contraband. Arrested Friday in Vegas, the heiress told cops the purse that they saw cocaine fall out of during a traffic stop wasn't her purse, according to an arrest report obtained by the Associated Press. Such a frequent misunderstanding!
- Not my pants: Lindsay Lohan in 2007, on the cocaine found in her pocket during a drunk-driving stop in L.A. She said she was wearing a friend's pants; later pleaded guilty to cocaine use and DUI.
- Not my luggage: Former "CSI" star Gary Dourdan in 2008, on being found asleep in his car in Palm Springs, Calif., with a bag full of drugs, which he told reporters must have been left behind by someone he'd given a ride to at the Coachella music festival; later pleaded guilty to possession.
- Not my prosthetic penis: Tom Sizemore in 2005, when accused of cheating on a court-mandated drug test with something called the Whizzinator; also said that wasn't his underwear in which authorities found the device.
