On September 7, 2006, at 12:25 am, Los Angeles Police Department officers initiated a traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of Ms. Paris Hilton. The subsequent investigation led to Ms. Hilton's arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). A review of the officers actions and the events following Ms. Hilton's arrest indicate that there was no deviation from Department policy.
Ms. Hilton was booked and released as required by law and Department protocol. I concurred with the Hollywood Area Watch Commander’s decision to release her on her own recognizance to a responsible party as permitted by law. In doing so, we were able to ensure that there ws no extended disruption of Hollywood Station operations or public safety.
