Paris Hilton's boyfriend, Cy Waits, has an Aug. 22 court date to fight criminal charges stemming from a Las Vegas Strip traffic stop with the celebrity socialite.

The 35-year-old Waits didn't appear Thursday in Las Vegas Justice Court.

His attorney, Richard Schonfeld, told a judge that he intends to challenge the constitutionality of Waits' felony charge of being under the influence of marijuana.

The former nightclub mogul also faces misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence following his Aug. 27 arrest.

Hilton pleaded guilty in September to misdemeanor cocaine possession and obstruction charges. She's serving a year of probation.

Police stopped the couple in a black Cadillac Escalade after an officer reported a "vapor trail" of marijuana smoke wafting from the vehicle.

  1. He's a mogul and she's a movie star?

    Maybe I live in an alternate reality.

    I can't quite comprehend either of those statements.

  2. Yes, what happened to a speedy trial. I notice that a lot here where people get delay after delay to go to trial.

  3. JDM hit the nail squarely on the head.

    This Cy dude had a good position at the Wynn and blew it.

    Heck, I can't even find a decent part time job to supplement my social security.

    I'll take a job at the Wynn, Encore or even Macau, any job.

  4. WTF is a former nightclub mogul?? Haha, you have got to be kidding.

  5. This is wierd. How does "he intends to challenge the constitutionality of Waits' felony charge of being under the influence of marijuana." if he is charged with " faces misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence following his Aug. 27 arrest."?? She was smart copped and fled so to speak..

  6. He looks more like a night club worker, than a mogul.

  7. DOES ANYONE KEEP A RECORD OF WHO BUYS THESE (BLACK) CADILAC (Escalade'S)?

    I WOULD NOT WANT TO ROUSE ANY FALSE SUSCPION'S.
