The couple was stopped in a black Cadillac Escalade after the officer smelled what the report called a “vapor trail” of marijuana smoke.

Waits was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A toxicology report is pending.

Hilton was banned from two Wynn resorts after the arrest, and Waits was dismissed as a partner in the venue’s nightclub.

At the Las Vegas Justice Court, a gaggle of photographers and onlookers followed Hilton as she climbed into a black Cadillac Escalade after the hearing.

Hilton, wearing a champagne-colored blouse, black pencil skirt and black platform heels, did not address the crowd when she went in or out of court, mouthing “thank you” only after a fan yelled, “You’re beautiful, Paris.”

Hilton won’t have to report to a probation officer under the plea agreement.

She originally faced a felony cocaine possession charge that also would not have resulted in jail time but could have brought up to three years probation.

Hilton’s attorney and a Clark County prosecutor both stressed that a legal red carpet had not been rolled out for the hotel heiress.

“She was treated like anybody else would be treated under the circumstances,” Chesnoff said.

Hilton plans to continue volunteering with animal advocacy groups and children’s hospitals to complete her community service hours, he said.
