Party Queen Paris Hilton Banned From Las Vegas Hot Spots

Hollywood's preeminent party queen needs to find a new place to play.

Paris Hilton has been banned from two Las Vegas hot spots following her arrest last week for alleged possession of cocaine.

Wednesday, a Wynn Resorts spokesperson told The Associated Press that Hilton is no longer welcome at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. Meanwhile, Hilton's boyfriend, Cy Waits, has been "separated" from his new managerial position at Tryst Nightclub at Wynn and the XS The Nightclub at Encore. The two were arrested on Aug. 27 -- he on misdemeanor DUI charges, she on felony drug possession charges -- after Las Vegas police pulled over Waits' Cadillac Escalade.

According to an officer's report, when a little white baggie fell out of the purse Hilton was carrying, she said that "she had not seen [the bag] but now thought it was gum."

The bag actually contained 0.8 grams of cocaine, according to People magazine, and now the 29-year-old heiress faces an Oct. 27 arraignment.

Hilton maintains she didn't put the drugs in the bag. According to the police report, she attested to owning a broken Albuterol pill, Zig Zag wrappers commonly used to smoke marijuana, and $1,300 in cash and credit cards, but said "several cosmetic items inside the purse were not hers."

While Hilton also initially said that the purse itself did not belong to her, according to Radar Online, the Chanel clutch she carried the night of her arrest looks identical to the purse in a photograph Hilton posted on her Twitter account in July along with the line, "Love My New Chanel Purse I Got Today :)"

The gravity of her current situation doesn't seem to have registered with the heiress. On Wednesday, she tweeted, "These rumors going around are so ridiculous, untrue and cruel. I'm not going to even pay attention to them, because I know the truth."

Hilton's "it wasn't me" line sounds strikingly familiar to a few pouty-faced proclamations she's made before. Below, four more of Hilton's memorable excuses:

1. After she was detained and released for possession of marijuana in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in July, Hilton took to her Twitter account to assert, "I had nothing to do with it." She dismissed pot-smoking accusations as "a lot of crazy rumors" before reiterating "I was not charged or arrested, 'cause I didn't do anything." Her publicist hammered home the point in her own statement, calling the incident "a complete misunderstanding, and it was actually another person in the group who did it."
