An arrest report detailing the events leading to the weekend arrest of Paris Hilton on the Las Vegas Strip was released Monday morning.

The hotel heiress was with her boyfriend, Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits, who manages a club inside the Wynn Las Vegas and was driving the black SUV that the officer stopped nearby at 11:22 p.m. Friday.

According to the arrest report, Hilton claimed the cocaine in her purse wasn't hers, but other items found in her purse, including Zig Zag rolling papers and a broken Albuterol tablet, were hers.

Hilton also said the purse didn't belong to her, police said.

Hilton was arrested on suspicion of felony cocaine possession. If convicted of the low-grade felony, she would get probation, but any violation of that probation would be punishable by up to one to four years in Nevada state prison.

When Hilton was released from custody, officers gave her a tentative date of Oct. 27 to return to Las Vegas Justice Court before Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure. That court date was expected to be finalized by court administrators today.

Cy Waits' date to return to court is expected to be in November before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Nancy Oesterle.
