Paris Hilton in Tent City?

Posted on May 14, 2007

The news report below suggests that Paris Hilton could end up serving time at Tent City, which has been described as a "military camp in the desert." Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona who is also known as "the toughest sheriff in the West," has apparently extended an offer to house Paris Hilton due to overcrowding in Los Angeles jails.

Here is some more information about what Sheriff is like. Tent City is an extension of the Maricopa County Jail using "used tents from the military" that was established by Arpaio as a solution to overcrowded prisons. In the hot summer of 1993 it reached 110 degrees in Arpaio's Tent City.

If this is true, and we doubt it, this would be a gross miscarriage of justice. She may be annoying at time, but she certainly isn't a violent criminal.
