Paris Hilton Pleads Not Guilty To Drunk Driving Charges – Actress Singer Says She was Hungry and Wanted In – N – Out Burgers

Scene From Video

Paris Hilton pleaded not guilty to two counts of DUI at an arraignment hearing Tuesday. The reality-TV star was stopped on September 6th after police spotted her driving her Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren erratically outside a Hollywood hot spot.

At that time she failed a field sobriety test and sources say she blew a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer test. That is the minimum blood-alcohol level required for a DUI in California. The actress said she was on her way to In N Out Burger for a meal.

Since the charges were misdemeanor, she did not have to appear in court. Her attorney made the plea on her behalf. She does not have any prior arrests for drunk driving.

The day after her arrest Hilton’s publicist, Elliot Mintz, said that she only had one drink and denied that she was driving while intoxicated. Mintz said she was exhausted after working a long day shooting a music video for her song, "Nothing in This World."

Mintz said that Hilton’s failure of the breathalyzer test was "probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued," combined with the single margarita. She had the drink at a charity event.

She could have had the In-N-Out urge. "Maybe I was speeding a little bit," Hilton told Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM the next day. "I was just really hungry and wanted to have an In-N-Out burger. Everything I do is blown out of proportion."
