Crying Paris Hilton is sent back to jail
Paris Hilton today was ordered to return to her solitary cell, a day after she had been sent to her spacious home with an electronic monitoring bracelet and became the center of a storm of protest that she was being treated better than someone less famous.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer made his ruling after an hourlong hearing that was delayed while Hilton, wearing handcuffs, was brought to court in a sheriff's patrol car. Earlier, it seemed that she would attend the hearing only via telephone, but she was ordered to appear in person.
"The defendant is remanded to L.A. County jail," Sauer ruled at about 12:06 p.m. "The order is final and forthwith."
