LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) After being arrested for possession of an illegal narcotic, most people would worry about the consequences, legal fees, and even the possibility of jail time; however, Hollywood heiress Paris Hilton is not most people and claims she is not worried about her latest arrest for possession of cocaine.

Hilton was arrested Friday night after a motorcycle cop reportedly smelled something unusual and saw a trail of smoke wafting from a Black Cadillac Escalade cruising down the Las Vegas Strip.

The cop pulled the vehicle over and allegedly found the 29-year-old socialite and her newest Romeo, Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits. Waits was driving at the time of the stop.

According to Sgt. John Sheahan, while police were questioning Waits, Hilton, who was in police custody inside the Wynn Las Vegas, allegedly reached inside her purse for "a tube of lip balm. At the same time, says Sheahan, a bindle of cocaine in a plastic bag came out of her purse" in plain view of police in the room.

Hilton was arrested on the spot on suspicion of felony cocaine possession, but is telling friend she is not worried, says The New York Daily News.

TMZ reports Hilton has already spoken up, claiming her girlfriend is to blame for the illegal contents of her purse.

"I had no idea the cocaine was there. I swear on my life," Hilton told friends.

Waits was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It was also reported that the 34-year-old was fired from his managerial posts for Wynn and Encore properties, reports The New York Daily News.

Unfortunately for Waits, there are apparently consequences for spending a night with Paris.
