In January 2007, Paris Hilton pleaded no contest to a charge of reckless driving stemming from her arrest in September 2006 for driving under the influence. She was given 36 months probation and her driver's license was suspended.

In January 2007, Hilton was pulled over for driving with a suspended license. At that time she was required to sign a document stating that she was aware that she was not allowed to drive.

In February 2007, she was stopped again for driving 70 mph in a 35 mph zone on a suspended license and for not having her headlights on after dark. She was found in violation of the terms of her probation and was sentenced to 45 days in jail.

Hilton reported to the Century Regional Detention Facility, in Lynwood, California on June 5, but on June 7, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca reassigned her to 40 days of home confinement with an electronic monitoring device because of a undisclosed medical condition.

When the judge who had issued the original sentence heard about her release, he summoned her back to court and sent her back to jail. Hilton reacted dramatically, demanding that she be allowed to hug her mother between screaming that the judge's decision was not right.

Because of her erratic behavior in court, she was placed in the medical wing of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles. On June 13, she was moved back to the Lynwood facility where she stayed until her release on June 26, 2007.
