Paris Hilton ticketed by police for driving on a suspended license

Paris Hilton was cited for driving on a suspended license after police stopped her for speeding and driving without her headlights on late Tuesday, authorities said.

The hotel heiress and star of "The Simple Life" reality series was pulled over on Sunset Boulevard in her blue Bentley Continental GTC at 11 p.m., said Sgt. Duane Allen Jr. of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

She was on her way home from buying DVDs in West Hollywood after spending the day at home for a photo shoot, her publicist, Elliot Mintz, said.

Hilton, 26, was issued a ticket for driving on a suspended license, a misdemeanor, and released. A court date was not immediately set.

She was alone and there was no sign of drinking or drugs, Allen said.

Mintz said Hilton did not realize the car's headlights were not on because she had just left a parking structure that was brightly lit. She was told by police she was stopped for not having the headlights turned on. Speeding was not mentioned, Mintz said.

"When she called me, she asked if her license was suspended," Mintz said early Wednesday. "If that's the case, she and I are unaware of it."

Hilton was picked up by a friend and taken home after the incident. Her car was impounded, reports AP.

In January, Hilton pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving stemming from her Sept. 7 arrest in Hollywood. She was sentenced to 36 months' probation, alcohol education and $1,500 (EUR1,135) in fines. That case was reduced from an original charge of driving under the influence.
