Paris caught driving while hungry

Honey emails us with breaking news: Pairs Hilton has been arrested for driving under the influence:

Hilton was arrested shortly before 12:30 a.m. in Hollywood, said police Officer I. Isabella, who declined to give his first name.

"The officers observed that Hilton exhibited the symptoms of intoxication. A field sobriety test was conducted at scene, and the officers determined she was driving under the influence," Isabella said, reading a police statement.

While the police statementise, so do Hilton's people:

Her spokesman, Elliot Mintz, confirmed the arrest and said she had the minimum blood-alchohol level to warrant an arrest. The legal limit in California is 0.08 percent.

"She's absolutely fine," Mintz said.

At the time of her arrest, Hilton was driving home from a charity event where she had one drink, he said. She had spent the day shooting a music video for her new album.

The DUI was "probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued," Mintz said.

We love the idea that she wouldn't even have been drinking but she was doing it for the charity.

It does raise a wider question, in that if Paris Hilton drives like she's drunk when she hasn't eaten properly, since she looks like she's not had a proper meal since about 1989, how in the hell did she pass her driving test?

[UPDATE: Paris, not Pairs. That might have been freudian, though]
