Paris Hilton arrested at World Cup on drugs charges
Paris Hilton was held at a World Cup game last night for allegedly smoking dope.
The socialite, 29, appeared in court hours later after being hauled from the Brazil-Holland clash in Port Elizabeth's Nelson Mandela Bay stadium and taken to a police station.
There she was fingerprinted along with her close pal, freelance photographer Jennifer Rovero, 31.
At a special World Cup court at around midnight local time, Rovero, a former glamour model, was ordered to pay a 1,000 SA rand fine – about £80 – or face 30 days’ imprisonment after pleading guilty to possession of cannabis. But all charges against Hilton were dropped.
South African police said that officials were last night considering deportation proceedings against Rovero, who is an American citizen.
