Paris Hilton: Hardened Criminal
"After spending the afternoon at the Apple store on Melrose Avenue, where she spent several thousand dollars, Paris Hilton received a telling off after taking a detour in a bicycle lane while driving her GMC Yukon Hybrid.
Police spotted the shortcut made by the 4Ã—4, and quickly pulled her over before giving her a stern talking to. Paris then showed the officer her driving licence and the police then let her go on her way after receiving a warning.
Before being pulled over, Paris updated her Twitter while shopping in the Hollywood shop by saying that she had purchased "some new computers and electronic gadgets." She continued to say that she was a `tech nerd` and `technology rocks.`"
If an average citizen crashes his car into city hall, there would be a small article in the local paper, but when a celeb stubs her toe or is given a warning for improper driving it makes headlines around the world.
Paris Hilton received only a warning, but the socialite is a hardened criminal, and doesn`t deserve lenient treatment. In September 06, the pop tart was arrested and charged with a DUI, and in January 07, she pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge.
In a perfect world Paris would have been thrown in the slammer for 30 days to spare us from such insightful tweets as "technology rocks." If I tweeted "Paris Hilton Sucks", I bet it would be the most re-tweeted tweet of all time.
