Paris Hilton thanks fans for support over drug arrest

Monday August 30, 2010

Socialite Paris Hilton has thanked her fans for their support after being detained by police in the US for alleged possession of cocaine.

The 29-year-old (pictured in a police photo) was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday after officers stopped a car in which she was travelling as a passenger.

Officers found some suspicious powder in the vehicle, which later proved to be cocaine.

After being booked into county jail before being charged, she was later released.

Paris tweeted on Sunday: "I'm so thankful to all my fans for all the love and support you are giving me. Thank you all. Love you so much. Love Paris xoxo."

The 29-year-old, who in July was arrested and later released in South Africa on a cannabis charge after a friend claimed ownership of the drugs, has said the cocaine and the purse they were found in were not hers.
