The Las Vegas chief deputy district attorney who prosecuted Paris Hilton for cocaine possession has been arrested and accused of buying crack from a man riding in his BMW.
David Schubert was arrested Saturday evening after an officer saw what he thought was a drug transaction and stopped Schubert’s vehicle, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. The prosecutor was charged with possession of cocaine.
As the chief deputy, Schubert had been assigned to several high-profile drug cases, including the prosecutions of Hilton and singer Bruno Mars, according to the Review-Journal, the Las Vegas Sun, KTNV.com and 8NewsNow.com.
District Attorney David Roger told the Review-Journal that Schubert has been suspended and an investigation has been launched into whether he compromised any drug cases.
