[ 2006-09-27 10:44 ]

9月26日,希尔顿饭店女继承人帕里斯·希尔顿因酒醉开车,遭洛杉矶检察官起诉。9月7日凌晨,社交名媛希尔顿在开车回家途中,由于出现疑似酒驾行为而被警方逮捕。虽然希尔顿指责警方故意夸大了事件本身,但她确实未通过血液酒精检测。如果未来法院定酒驾罪名成立,豪门艳女有可能面临最高六个月的有期徒刑以及一千美元罚款。

Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton was charged on Tuesday with drunk driving, stemming from an arrest earlier this month she blamed on her rush to get a late-night burger.

Hilton, 25, was charged with two misdemeanor counts: Driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of .08, Los Angeles City Attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

An initial court appearance was set for Thursday, but Hilton would not be required to attend, he said.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of six months in county jail and $1,000 fine, but Mateljan said most first offenders were given probation and ordered to attend alcohol counseling.

Hilton was pulled over about 1 a.m. on September 7 by police who said she was driving erratically.

The star of reality show "The Simple Life" subsequently told a Los Angeles radio station the incident had been blown out of proportion but she may have been speeding to satisfy her craving for a hamburger.
