Paris Hilton was held by police on the French island of Corsica and caught with less than a gram of marijuana in her purse, the Agence France-Presse reports.
The heiress, 29, was stopped at the airport in Figari after arriving on a private jet from Paris on Friday. According to reports, police soon released Hilton without charging her.
Hilton, who had a brush with the law in South Africa earlier this month after allegedly smoking marijuana at the World Cup, is expected to continue her travels in Sardinia, Italy.
