(Reuters) - Another run-in with the law for Paris Hilton. The 29-year-old, who is the great-granddaughter of Hilton hotels founder Conrad Hilton, was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday night and charged with cocaine possession.

Hours before her arrest on the Las Vegas strip, Hilton sat with a local reporter for an interview at a hair salon.

This was the second drug-related arrest for Hilton in two months. She was briefly detained after a World Cup soccer match in South Africa in July on suspicion of marijuana possession.

Three years ago, Hilton pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving and served 23 days in jail.
