Paris Hilton Caught Up in Drug Bust

This was a case of name-dropping gone bad. Some drunk driver tried to pretend he was on his way to pick up Paris Hilton and former friend Brandon Davis (who wasn't even in Australia) in an attempt to get out of a ticket. Fortunately, it didn't work out too well for him.

Mehmet Gulasi, 39, was pulled over by cops in the early hours of New Year's Day in Australia for speeding. When the cops pulled him over he claimed that he was speeding because he was on his way to pick up Paris and Brandon. Obviously the cops didn't buy his story and he was given a breathalyzer test.

He was well over the legal limit and clearly intoxicated. When the cops searched his car they found some cocaine and prescription pills, reports the Sydney Daily Telegraph.

He was later charged with possessing a prohibited drug, two counts of possessing or attempting to possess a prescribed restricted substance and driving with an expired license.

How stupid do you have to be to try to use Paris' name with a cop? Did he think the cop was going to care that he was on his way to see her? They should have charged the guy with two counts of stupidity.
