(Newser) – You better believe Paris Hilton got special treatment after she was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession. "Yeah, she was treated differently so I don't have a disruption of my process here at the county jail," says the jailer who rushed Hilton through the booking process in three hours—half the average time. "When you bring somebody in like that, everybody comes over and tries to look at them. I'd have officers attempting to keep inmates away from her. I'd have disruptions."

Hilton was not, however, treated any differently when it came to the actual process—she went through all the steps...just quicker than the other 207 alleged criminals who were in the Las Vegas jail alongside her. She was also placed in isolation because "to put Paris Hilton in an open dorm area with male inmates and female inmates would shut down my process," the jailer tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Hilton is scheduled to appear before a judge Oct. 27.
