Japanese officials delayed Paris Hilton at Narita Airport while they decide whether she will be admitted to the country after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge in Las Vegas.
An e-mailed statement by Hilton's rep, Dawn Miller, said the 29-year-old was stopped by immigration authorities upon her arrival Tuesday in Japan.
Hilton was scheduled to appear at a news conference in Tokyo today to promote her fashion line, but that appearance was apparently canceled.
Narita Airport's immigration office questioned Hilton "for hours" to determine if she should be allowed to enter the country, the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau said, according to Japan's Kyodo news agency. Authorities asked Hilton to stay at an airport hotel so they could continue procedures today, Kyodo reported.
The trip had been planned before Hilton's arrest last month in Las Vegas after an officer found cocaine in her purse. She pleaded guilty Monday to drug possession and obstructing an officer and was placed on probation for one year.
Lohan: Back to court
Another warrant, another court hearing for Lindsay Lohan . Lohan has been ordered to appear at a hearing Friday after a judge issued an arrest warrant for failing a drug test less than a month after she was released from inpatient rehab.
Superior Court Judge Elden Fox revoked Lohan's probation in her three-year-old drug case Monday and issued a bench warrant that was immediately stayed, allowing her to remain free until the hearing to determine if she violated her probation.
Previously, Fox had threatened the actress with 30 days in jail for each violation. He must now decide whether to send her back to jail or into treatment.
