Paris Hilton could be charged with theft, vandalism for behavior at LA newsstand.
Drama queen Paris Hilton may end up in prison because of her latest hissy fit. Celebrity Justice reports that the “Los Angeles County sheriff wants Paris prosecuted” because she “went ballistic when she spotted her infamous X-rated video on sale” at a newsstand in West Hollywood. But this isn’t just some Page Six item with no attribution: There’s video of Paris at the newsstand. She “tried to rip up a poster” and then takes “what appears to be a DVD, which Castro told us was her ‘One Night in Paris’ video.” The newsstand employee says, “She threw her eighty cents change at me and took the video and said, ‘I’m taking this and I’m not buying it.'” Celebrity Justice reports that “the LA County sheriff’s department will refer the case to the Beverly Hills district attorney’s office this week, and recommend that the pretty heiress be charged with petty theft and vandalism.”
