Paris Hilton dereassigned back to jail

'Mom, mom, it's not right', wails recaged heiress

The essential guide to IT transformation

Paris Hilton has been sent packing back to jail to complete her stint in chokey for violating probation on a drink-drive rap. The heiress was not initially in Los Angeles County Superior Court this morning to face Judge Sauer, having apparently decided to "appear by phone". Sauer, who originally handed down the sentence and ordered that Hilton do the full stretch, was having none of it, and demanded her presence in the courtroom.

Cue much pandemonium, with Hilton cuffed and led to an awaiting vehicle to carry her to her dateline with destiny amid shameless scenes of press frenzy as TV helicopters and paparazzi battled to record the historic moment for posterity.

According to Reuters, once she finally got herself before the beak, she was rapidly sent back to the can, exiting the court in cuffs shouting "Mom, mom, it's not right".

For those of you who may have missed the highly-entertaining rumpus, Hilton was released on Thursday from Century Regional Detention Centre in Lynwood, California, for unspecified "medical reasons", having completed just three days of her stretch. She was fitted with a GPS ankle bracelet and confined to within 2,000 to 3,000 feet of her West Hollywood home.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore explained : "After extensive consultation with medical personnel, it was decided this reassignment should be done." He added that Hilton would be confined to quarters for 40 days, after which she would have "fulfilled her debt to society".

However, the Los Angeles City Attorney was none too impressed with Hilton's release, and filed a petition "demanding LA's Superior Court to show why Sheriff Lee Baca should not be held in contempt of court for releasing Ms Hilton".

Jeffrey Isaacs, head of the office's Criminal Branch, said: "The decision whether or not Ms Hilton should be released early and placed on electronic monitoring should be made by Judge Sauer, and not the Sheriff's Department." Hilton was duly ordered back to court for Judge Sauer's verdict on her "reassignment". Sadly for the lachrymose socialite, Sauer decided to "dereassign" her back to the slammer. ®
