Former Tryst and XS managing partner Cy Waits faces a felony charge of being under the influence of marijuana stemming from the Aug. 27 arrest outside Wynn that also got Paris Hilton into her purse-or-no-purse cocaine shenanigans.
There were also two misdemeanor charges filed: possession of marijuana and driving under the influence of a controlled substance. If convicted, Waits could face four years in prison. He’s due back in court Feb. 17.
Hilton pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors in September, ducking jail with a suspended sentence, but caught 200 hours of community service, fines and a trip to a substance-abuse program. If Waits is actually convicted and sent to the hoosegow for weed, expect NORML activists to riot openly in the streets.
