Paris Hilton banned from Wynn resorts after Las Vegas arrest

Celebrity socialite Paris Hilton has been banned from two Wynn resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and her boyfriend has been dismissed as nightclub manager following their arrests.

Wynn spokeswoman Jennifer Dunne said Wednesday that Hilton won't be allowed at the properties anymore.

Dunne says Cy Waits has been "separated" from his job as managing partner of the Tryst Nightclub at Wynn and XS The Nightclub at Encore.

Also today, a police officer reported finding a rolled paper "roach" that he believed was marijuana in a vehicle after Waits failed field sobriety tests during a traffic stop on the Las Vegas Strip.

Waits spent a night in jail on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence.

He's free on $2,000 bail. A criminal case not yet been filed.

Hilton was arrested late Friday on a felony cocaine possession charge and Waits was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence after police smelled marijuana coming from their vehicle.

Police say a bag containing 0.8 of a gram of cocaine fell out when Hilton reached into a purse for lip balm. She has an Oct. 27 court date.

  1. Wow, I'm glad Metro has solved all the murders and rapes, so they can focus on a eeeeekkkk! a roach!!!

    What he-men you are! Did Metro sell the pictures to TMZ?

    Guess people will stay in California and smoke their legal medical pot and gamble at the Native American casinos.

    This is great for tourism, next thing you'll want another tax increase for more cops.

  2. Libra: Boy do I ever agree with you.

  3. Put in Wynn resorts black book, now that's quite an accomplishment.

    Paris, get it together!

  4. How many people think that Steve Wynn never used cocaine? How many people believe Wynn never used cocaine in a casino/hotel?

  5. Not convicted of a crime, so she can be banned for an arrest? Looks like Wynn is adopting the policies of his beloved communist China. I guess Wynn's father could come if he was alive (arrest record?).

    Drug users banded? No more Rush Limbaugh, Glen Buck, Betty Ford, and so on...add to that a number of celebrities and sports figures. Rudy Giuliani's daughter???

    Maybe he can dust off some old signs from the 50's (Nevada the Mississippi of the West and all) "We reserve the right to serve anyone."

  6. Mr. Wynn owns the properties, he has the right to run them as he sees fit.

    You don't like how he runs his properties, don't go there.

    You think you can do better, put your money where your mouth is and open your own place.

  7. 80yroldvegasguy,

    let's see 4 killed in NHP 115 mph into Cad full of illegals, two officers dead because of crashes: one on trop, one on Nellis outside of Bucks Bar, (over speed limit no lights, no siren) The NHP "accident investigator" allegedly on POT killed one other motorist on Decatur...and this one makes 8 dead because of law enforcement in Southern Nevada.

    How many people did Hilton kill as a passenger in a SUV?

  8. @ Vegaslee

    Steve Wynn does not own the Wynn or Encore hotels or the businesses inside them. They are owned by a publicly traded corporation.

    Personally, I think Wynn is a sanctimonious hypocrite. Wynn made his daughters publicly cry at the opening of Encore, because he was cheating on his wife with a notorious Euro-trash social climber whose father was a fugitive from the US for securities fraud.

    Wynn's sacking his employee for a DUI arrest, not even on Wynn property, where the man has not even been convicted, simply shows he's an inhumane creep as well as a hypocrite.

  9. What a JOKE.
    All of it.
    Wynn, Paris, Cy...the "banning"...
    OH please...
    SPARE ME your SANCTIMONIOUS B.S., Mr. Casino Mogul.
