Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton was back behind bars last night after one of the most amazing turnarounds in American legal history.
Released just three days into her 45-day sentence on Thursday, she was recalled back to Court by a sane judge yesterday, and told that she must serve the rest of the term in a "specialist hospital jail" for those who have been diagnosed as "unstable".
Miss Hilton arrived at the Los Angeles courtroom in reinforced titanium handcuffs, sporting a pink Versace dress and matching handbag and electronic tag. She cried throughout the entire hearing, wailing:
"I'm not right!"
LA County sheriff Lee 'Chew' Baca concurred, and decreed that she should spend the remainder of her sentence at the Twin Towers Nuthouse in LA, a place normally reserved for prisoners who have "gone over the edge".
Sheriff Baca said:
"She's a nut, and nuts go to the nuthouse!"
Hilton was taken away for a fitting for her straightjacket, which will be in a choice of three colours, white, pink or lemon.
Her mother, who was also in the courtroom, screamed at the judge:
"My daughter is innocent etc!"
