Paris Hilton was arrested early on Thursday for investigation of driving under the influence, police said. Hilton was arrested shortly before 12:30 a.m. in Hollywood, said police Officer I.

Isabella, who declined to give his first name. "The officers observed that Hilton exhibited the symptoms of intoxication. A field sobriety test was conducted at scene, and the officers determined she was driving under the influence," Isabella said, reading a police statement.

Hilton was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence and released, he said.

Her spokesman, Elliot Mintz, confirmed the arrest and said she had the minimum blood-alcohol level to warrant an arrest. The legal limit in California is 0.08 percent.

"She's absolutely fine," Mintz said.

At the time of her arrest, Hilton was driving home from a charity event where she had one drink, he said. She had spent the day shooting a music video for her new album.

The driving under the influence symptoms were "probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued," Mintz said.

In June, Hilton had a fender-bender accident when her Range Rover backed into a car in a parking garage after a shopping trip.
