Paris Hilton Is Under Close Medical Watch

I can’t understand why Paris is still in jail!

Paris Hilton spent her first night in a locked-down medical ward after suffering in jail what the sheriff called a deteriorating, life-threatening condition that left her speaking incoherently.

Hilton, who wailed as she was taken out of court Friday, was sent to the Twin Towers Correctional Facility’s Correctional Treatment Center in the adjacent medical building.

“It’s a jail,” says sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Bill Brauberger. “They do more on the psychiatric side at Twin Towers, which is reserved for more minor medical issues.”

Hilton, 26, was placed in a room by herself with guards at the door, a source tells PEOPLE.

She hasn’t eaten or slept since arriving, and was visited Friday morning by her psychiatrist, reports

A former inmate tells PEOPLE, “You can’t sleep in there. All night and day people are screaming and crying.”

Hilton was released from Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., early Thursday and reassigned to home detention after serving just three days of her minimum 23-day sentence.

On Friday, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ordered Hilton back to jail to serve the reminder of her term for violating probation for driving repeatedly with a suspended license.

Sheriff Lee Baca, whose department runs the jails, said she was reassigned for medical reasons. He didn’t disclose the exact nature of them, but said that in her previous jail Hilton “was not speaking coherently and that her condition was life-threatening.”

He added her “medical condition had been deteriorating.”
