Paris Hilton boyfriend faces felony in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) - January 20, 2011 (WPVI) -- Paris Hilton's boyfriend is facing criminal charges stemming from his arrest with the celebrity socialite last summer on the Las Vegas Strip.
A complaint filed Thursday charges 35-year-old Cy Waits with a felony of being under the influence of marijuana, and misdemeanor driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. The former nightclub mogul could face up to four years in prison on the felony charge.
Police say an officer stopped the SUV Waits was driving Aug. 27 after smelling marijuana smoke coming from the vehicle.
Waits is due for arraignment Feb. 17. A message seeking comment was left for his lawyer Thursday.
Hilton is serving a year of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor cocaine possession and obstruction charges in the case.
