Paris Hilton prosecutor arrested for cocaine possession

Reported by NY Daily News

The Vegas prosecutor who took Paris Hilton and Grammy winner Bruno Mars to task for cocaine possession was busted Saturday on charges of buying crack from a street dealer near the strip.

David Schubert, 47, was pulled over around 5 p.m. and swallowed a crack rock as an undercover cop closed in, Clark County District Attorney David Roger told The News.

A second rock was recovered from his car, Roger said.

The street dealer arrested at the scene later told cops Schubert was a regular customer who started buying six or seven months ago and used him to score three to four times a week, a police report obtained by said.

“It’s disheartening. Obviously I don’t expect any of our prosecutors to be using drugs, but I was especially shocked he was buying crack cocaine to smoke it,” Roger told The News.

“I placed a great deal of trust in him, assigning him to a state and federal drug task force,” Roger said. “I have zero tolerance. We’re moving forward with his termination.”

Authorities got search warrants to test Schubert’s blood and search his two residences. The Nevada Attorney General is expected to get the case in a matter of days, Roger said.

“I was saddened to hear that – if the allegations are true – that another person has been affected by the disease of drug usage,” attorney David Chesnoff, who repped both Hilton and Mars, told The News. “I wish him the best.”

Yes, but why did the most beautiful woman, and a true GODDESS, have cocaine in her purse? Paris does not use drugs, and drinks very little. Her high is LIFE!

It was less than 1 gram .

That’s why she only got a year of unsupervised probation.

LMFAO JWB!! There is numerous evidence of Paris smoking weed, eating magic mushrooms & snorting coke on the web. Anyone remember Paris Exposed? Anyway, a little recreational drug use that isn’t out of control isn’t a big deal anyway, I don’t know why people act like it is. Heaps of celebs & other people do drugs sometimes & are just fine. It’s people like Amy Winehouse for example who just can’t handle it & make it look bad for everyone.

I personally think it’s best to drop drug use altogether. There are better and safer ways to have a little bit of fun.

Dawn, it’s 6 month for drug possession, and 6 months for lying to an officer.

At least Paris seems to learn from her mistakes and usually does not repeat them.

A great many celebs do much worse, yet no one bats an eye.
