And it is roughly half the average time it takes to process people facing the same charge through the Clark County Detention Centre. Jim Dixon, Metropolitan Police Deputy Chief said that a crowd of about 100 people gathered outside the Wynn Las Vegas resort to snap photos and shoot video of Hilton while her boyfriend, Cy Waits, was pulled over and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
"Yeah, she was treated differently so I don't have a disruption of my process here at the county jail," the Mirror quoted Dixon as telling the Las Vegas Review Journal.
"When you bring somebody in like that, everybody comes over and tries to look at them. I'd have officers attempting to keep inmates away from her. I'd have disruptions.
"She was moved along out of the general area and put in isolation where nobody can actually get to her. ... As soon as (her release on her own recognisance) was pushed through, she was kicked out," he said.
