Paris Hilton - Cy Waits Fined, Drug Charges Dropped
Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend Cy Waits has been fined $585 (Gbp365) after settling drug charges stemming from an arrest last year (10).
The former nightclub boss and Hilton were pulled over by cops while driving down the Las Vegas Strip last August (10) and officers smelled marijuana during a curbside chat with the couple.
Waits was taken into custody on suspicion of Dui and the socialite was charged with cocaine possession after police found drugs in her purse.
Waits originally faced a felony charge of being under the influence of marijuana, misdemeanour driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, but, after pleading no contest to the latter, he accepted a plea deal this week (begs22Aug11) and all charges were dropped on Wednesday (24Aug11).
Hilton, who split from Waits earlier this year (11), is currently serving a year of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanour cocaine possession and obstruction of justice last September (10).
