Paris Hilton has been arrested for drunk driving.
The 'Stars Are Blind' singer was stopped by police in Hollywood in the early hours of yesterday morning (07.09.06) after officers noticed her Mercedes was being driven erratically.
The heiress, who was on her way back from a charity event with Kimberly Stewart, daughter of singer Rod Stewart, was stopped at 12.31 am.
Paris was taken to the police station and a test reportedly revealed the socialite was slightly over the legal limit.
Her sister, Nicky Hilton, arrived at the police station just before 2am along with her boyfriend Kevin Connolly and Paris' publicist Elliot Mintz to collect her.
Mintz has issued a statement, claiming Paris had only had one drink - a Margarita cocktail - all night.
The officers who stopped Paris' car claim they did not initially know who she was.
Just hours after the incident desperate Paris called into Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Los Angeles station KIIS FM to explain she had been speeding because she wanted a burger.
She said she was "starving" and was desperate to get to a fast-food restaurant.
If convicted, Paris faces three months' probation and having her driving license restricted for 90 days.
