Paris Hilton On Her Way to Court
It's all Paris, all the time.Earlier posts with background and my views here and here.
The judge in the Paris Hilton case flip-flops again. First he says Paris can appear by phone. Then the City Attorney complains and he orders her to come in. They are now waiting for Paris to arrive.
I'm riveted to the tv. I can't stand all the prosecutor heads screaming for blood. All three of the cable networks have them front and center. It's Gladiator Central.
But I'm watching as I'm packing and getting ready to leave town and will try to make to the finish.Update: Hearing now scheduled for "midday" local time. The Sheriff's van is on its way to Paris' house to pick her up. They are going to do a perp walk? How disgusting. Her bodyguard has umbrellas in hand. The scene at her home is a complete circus. I haven't seen anything like this since the OJ road chase.
Continued updates below the fold.
Update: A Sheriff's car has pulled into her driveway to pick her up. Note: She should not be cuffed because she's still on home detention and wearing the ankle bracelet. But, TMZ is reporting she was cuffed before being put in the car.
Update: Take some time to familiarize yourself with the issues that will be before the court. The City Attorney's complaint is here.
Update: All three cable networks have switched to a Pentagon press conference about the retirement of Joint Chiefs Chairman Peter Pace.
Looks like Paris may have caught a break -- her perp walk to the police car may have gotten pre-empted by the news conference. Update: Unbelievable scene at the house with the paparazzi chasing the police car down the hill on foot. So they're on the way to the courthouse.
Stay tuned, if you're interested. The uber-right Sheriff Joe from Maricopa County, AZ who makes his inmates wear pink panties is on MSNBC. He says he would have handcuffed her. Of course, there's no reason to. Until the Judge rules otherwise, she's on an ankle bracelet and hasn't violated the terms. Putting her in cuffs would have been atrocious.
10:30 a.m. Pacific Time
Update: Tommy Chong is on MSNBC. He's sticking up for Paris and blasing the media circus. Go, Tommy. That's Aspen in the background of his camera shot, he's speaking at the same conference I am, if I ever get off the computer and hit the road to start driving.
Update: New thread here.
