Heiress to a share of the Hilton Hotel fortune, Paris Hilton, was recently ordered to 45 days in jail for violating her probation.
But because of some serious overcrowding in Los Angeles jails, she may not have to serve the complete sentence.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's spoken to the chief of jails in Los Angeles and offered to house Hilton at Tent City.
"I just made an offer," Arpaio said. "Instead of reducing for her sentence, which I feel is wrong, why not bring her over here? We can incarcerate her here. She can do her time over here."
And according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff is considering the proposal.
"Oh, I’d love to have her here," Arpaio said. "Just another celebrity. Not that I'm a publicity hound, but I'd imagine if I had her in these tents there'd be (publicity)."
Arpaio says that while that Los Angeles County is considering his offer, Hilton’s lawyers will probably object.
I would bet there will be one hell of an objection to this proposal.
