Police say Paris Hilton has been released from jail after being arrested on cocaine possession charges in Las Vegas.
Police spokesman Marcus Martin says the socialite was arrested after police stopped the car she was in late Friday night on a Las Vegas street after they noticed what they suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from it.
Martin says Hilton was found to be in the possession of cocaine, but he didn't know how much.
She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center.
Police watch commander Lt. Wayne Holman said Hilton was released later on her own recognizance. He didn't have any details about a court date on the charge.
